Ultimate Practical Boat Weapon

I've been reading CF a while now and have read the weapon and gun threads. This past week sailing back from Maine my wife and myself found ourselves under attack and boarded by numerous beings that met us harm. It turned into a big hand to hand battle till we overcame the boarders. I feel I would be amiss if I didn't share the ultimate weapon that allowed this and which all boaters should have on their boat for self protection:

Re: ultimate practical boat weapon

I carried one of those weapons in Iraq, and I never let it get too far away from my side. I slaughtered the bastards with it. However, I also carried a "semi-automatic" version, and I was wondering if other people had a better version
