listening to other cruisers is a good way to guide your own path out here---we hear about stuff in advance of landlubbers--then land lubber media present the most overly sensationalized poo----yes it is dangerous to cruise--why-because we flaunt our money
in the face of those not having any!
easy access boats are mainly the ones boarded--as well as shiney beautiful prides and joy boats that scream steal me---like that cute shiny sporty car in the 'hood-- get real..
much of safety
is down to presentation.
park that shiny ferrari next to my clapped out vw---who will be the victim...certainly ant gonna be the clapped out anything..
we decide our own fates by our chosen behaviours, and to say otherwise is foolish squawk.
this is truth.
would you board derelict dans boat if there was a gorgeous shiny object next to it----lol
many of us are so busy making our pride and joy be gorgeous so folks admire and worship it and envy us for having such a treasure. this is not how to travel in this world. yes be happy to have your things. do not flaunt them in faces of those with nothing and expect to survive some kind of intrusion somewhere in this world--3rd or otherwise.
it is nice to know where assaultive behaviours are condoned and practiced---can save others this same fate--but be smart--knee jerk is not smart.
be safe out here. also be smart.
