one need not make a derelict looking craft to be under radar
. merely cruising oceans creates a rough look to a good cruiser. no shine, no varnish
and no awesome cool display of wealth toys to shove in faces of folks who make under 10 usd per day for living.
when cruising one MUST consider the folks in the area you cruise
what is their daily income
what does that 15 or 10 usd actually buy?? (not much)
how soon after a cane does their house get repaired?? is it 5 months before they can afford a roof for their home??
be smart, not assholes. assholes flaunt wealth then bitch when clobbered for their toys.
yes this IS the fault of the victim. victim is ASKING to be clobbered for their toys. imagine the incredible wealth the locals see from watching those of us who actually DO cruise
. how long do you imagine it would take a family
man with no money
for the kids
nor roof overhead nor appliances
(due to storm damages) to become emboldened enough to clobber someone for the OBVIOUS wealth displayed before them?
why not use the brains gifted to ye when born to be able to figger this out???
AVOID bs, avoid being clobbered...
do not shine in the face of poverty. get o know the local folks. assist them in some way to better their situations. become embraced by the locals. enjoy your experience.
it isnt that difficult.
i see so many cruisers avoid the local population, then , when the boat needs repaired, call on the gringos who only come here to exploit the cruisers.
why not use a local with knowledge and abilities instead of asking for the bs delivered??
life is so much easier when you utilize the local talent and avoid the bs wallet raping gringo destructors.
yet we the cruiser MUST go with the english
thieving wallet raper over the less pricey but more talented local.
and then the one with raped wallet continues to support the thieving idjit... without seeking appropriate assistance. this is a stoopit cycle. yes the victim is responsible, in cruising, for the outcome.
you go out into poverty flaunting wealth then bitch about being clobbered and robbed.
ye go to a pirate to have an engine
rebuilt.. lol.. is actually a sad state of affairs when folks are too lazy to seek out the good folks to help with a problem.
makes sense to me...
