Not in Australia apparently

Quote:
Australian and foreign yacht owners have objected to alleged ‘‘offhand and aggressive behaviour’’ by Customs and Border Protection officers who have demanded to board their boats.

A customs spokesperson has told Fairfax Media's The Sun-Herald that there were several legislative bases under which officers could board privately owned recreation vessels without the owner’s permission.

‘‘Primarily these powers are derived from the Customs Act 1901 and in particular sections 184A(3), 185 and 187 would all apply,’’ the statement said.

‘‘None of these powers would require officers to obtain warrants or the owner’s permission before completing boarding of such vessels.’’

Australian Customs Invade Privacy

and are you really going to argue with armed officials in other countries who demand to board for an inspection?
Let me know how that works out for you.

C.L.O.D. = Currently Living On Dirt.

Gord does not currently live on the water.

I hate it when I have to explain humor, kind of takes the joke out of it all.

No guns and fishing gear, I'd be inclined to believe they would be fisherman.
The Somalis have worked that out too.
They can see the navy ships a long way further off than the Navy ships can see the skiffs so they have plenty of time to decide what to do.

they ALL have fishing nets on board. under the fishing nest are the weapons and ladders. As the navy ships may see a number of skiffs each day its just difficult for them to stop and search all. Especially when the ship is meant to be guarding a convoy.

When weapons are slipped over the side theres nothing they can do. When weapons are found the ship removes them and then supplies fule and food to the skiff to ensure it can get back home safely.

Its not as easy as we think.

Not particularly fast at 30 knots but would go through anything. This is what the RN use when someone falls over board in a storm to get them back. Oh and the new price from Halmatic is 2x the price of our yacht
