Second boat border and robbed between TT and Grenada

Just reporting what was in Grenada Cruisers group, Reporting this so anyone traveling that area can be aware, this is the second act of piracy / robbery committed against a cruiser in this area in less than 2 weeks. I don't want this to turn into a gun thread with insults hurled,, and feelings hurt, I am Not being "chicken Little" as someone pointed out earlier, I am simply trying to help spread awareness.
If your not cruising this area and have nothing important to add, please move along

North of Hibiscus becomes a hot zone
It is with great regret I have to report there has been a second recent robbery between Trinidad and Grenada. I talked with the owner.
VesselĒ 32 foot sailing sloop three on board. Date 12/28/15, time around 1030 hrs
The vessel had passed close west of Hibiscus and was some 30 miles from Trinidad with 40 to go to Grenada when approached rapidly by an unmarked Pirogue which looked very pale blue with a grey rubrail, white inside. 130 hp out...board on the stern and a 150 hp outboard laying inside. Six persons were on board. They all spoke Spanish and one spoke broken English. Two boarded the others kept gun barrels under wraps pointed. They stole food, including cucumbers, toilet paper, phones, clothes and other gear worth about $400 US new.. Interestingly enough they were not interested in TT cash. They did not harm the occupants or harm the vessel. They remained cool and were not nervous or jumpy. They may or may not be the same as the previous pirates.
The TT coastguard will by now have been informed.
CSSN you can take this information as a second Hand report (I talked with the skipper)
