Friends of mine got a thieve coming aboard at night in the Tobago Cays last year. It seems nowhere is absolutely safe anymore. I'm seriously considering alternate means of defense such as nail carpets, alarm systems, motion activated lights and a Taser.
A taser you say. Is that not considered a weapon?

Tasers

Are these considered a weapon when clearing in to customs?

In the Windwards, customs ask for "firearms", not weapons. I don't know about other areas. A knife is a weapon, a harpoon is a weapon, gee... My gf is a weapon when she's angry at me! LOL
