Bring in Seal Team 6 they know how to deal with pirates that don't want to leave the boat.

Re: Stolen Sailboat story

I like the guy who said this shouldn't have happened because the boat would have had navigation equipment aboard.

What kind of navigation equipment is necessary to avoid washing up on a beach?

Darwin did intercede, and the boat was the casualty.
