If I had been the owner of that boat and the weapons I would have photographed them and the ammo boxes (or individual rounds) and emailed the photos to home. Maybe he did? Except when we took everything ashore at Cayman, the arsenal was locked in his cabin
in the biggest gun safe I've ever seen. The factory actually built the $3,000,000 boat around the gun safe. Someone mentioned tracking me from ballistics if I shot someone. BS, if I have to shoot someone the gun is going over the side in deep water
. Furthermore, I would have to be in mortal peril to use any kind of weapon in the territorial waters of a any country, even, or especially the US. The first thing I asked the owner when I boarded the boat was "Do we have any weapons on board?" That's when he showed me the safe. I recommend that anyone crewing
on someone else's boat ask that question of the owner or skipper
. You can then make up your own mind if you want to sail with them.
