(d) just sail be pleasant respect other cultures be aware that in certain very poor areas of the world you seem like a rich god with your insolent lifestyle and yes hunger has all through history made people take. It has actually made people take up arms and shoot the likes of you the insolent see history wear your riches lightly.

(e) your boat is not a castle and remember in a lot of countries what is private and defenible is not the same as " good Old back home". Live and learn ,if in the process you loose "stuff" then as my kids say "suck it up" remember your a god!!

(f) ps the world is not out to get Americans most of the tome it doesn't care about you ( shock horror)

god help us , electric fences, flare guns, weapons, throwing people over 80 miles offshor ( ps that's generally called murder) etc get a life actually go sailing

I see! So those of us with this insolent, God-like image should simply roll over and allow the indolent to take what they wish, on account of their 'culture' accepts the validity of theft, rape, pillage, et al?

So, for instance, one turns up in Guinea Bissau and finds the locals killing and raping babies, your apparent ideal is to simply join the throng.....being culturally sensitive, and all.

You should come to NZ and join the Maori Party, mate. They'd love you. According to their credo, any Maori caught doing something antisocial, like rape, pillage, mayhem, et al, is doing so as a result of some atavistic reaction to past wrongs.

You, me old buddy, need to come just a little bit closer to reality. Like, a lot closer.

UUUGGG, LESSS Seeee if I have this straight, 15000 Euros=20,290 American..

AND that does not include installation. That seems a bit harsh, don't you think?

The 8foot projecting wasp spray at Home Depot is pretty bad stuff. But you better get close and personal quick enough to maim, cripple or kill afterward because they are gonna be really pissed off. I used the ATT issued wasp spray on bad dogs, and it really does a number. Got blowback into my face a time or two using it on wasp while standing 15 feet in the air on climbers...not fun. The objective was to kill the wasp b4 they stung you.

On the electric fence idea, would it be a clear indication of a problem if you saw the water bubbling around the boat as your zinks were dissappearing, and your prop and your shaft and as you sat lower and lower in the water, the thought crossed your mind---oops...through hulls.

Just a thought.

Sing to a sailor's courage, Sing while the elbows bend,
A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.
