Piracy in modern Southeast Asia

Part I: Setting the Record Straight

http://www.seayachting.net/PDF/SY1-5/60-61-Piracy.pdf


This is the first in a series I am helping write for SEA Yachting magazine. I'd be interested in your thoughts.

Regards,
Scott

Good article, Scott.

Only 1 yacht piracy in SE Asia all last year - you'd get the impression from reading other threads there was a pirate lurking over every horizon...

I sympathize with the charterers and tourist trades.

And I look forward to your follow-up articles.

Cheers, Cameron

Now there is some good reading Scott.Maybe all those yachties up north will start taking their boats further north than the Whittsundays!Has sea Yachting got a forum site?If not,Get one!!,WE NEED a lot more interaction on line from Asia as a whole,afterall,we are neighbours.Journo's dont thrill me to much,But,I like your No-Frills approach to the artical.I did read your post about the delivery of ya boat ,but with all that typhoon **** going on I wouldn't have thought that Pirates would have been an issue.In fact the only thought I had on it overall was "Glad ya made it out of a hairy situation!!"Good on ya mate,Mudnut>
