Re: flamme thrower aboard??

You know what a pressurized flame thrower canister does when a rifle round hits it?

This is one really bad idea all the way around.

Trebuchet. You should be able to rig one up with your boom and some nylon anchor rode. Use the weight of your boat as it sinks to the bottom to hurl rocks at the oncoming pirates. Click image for larger version

Wife: I can’t believe you didn’t do anything to try and stop the pirates.
Husband: What could I have done?
Wife: You could have bought a flame thrower.
Husband: That would have just made the pirates mad and made things worse.
Wife: They raped me. How could things have been worse?
Husband: Well, they could have raped me, too.

That's a really cool picture. However, it could have been drawn by some peloponnesian 5th grader while daydreaming in class.


Just saying............

Re: flamme thrower aboard??

hello thanks for all replies, newbie on the forum but not on the seas, their weak point is they have to board you to come onboard, and thats the moment to flamme them, when they think you surrender to their threats,do not forget that even if you comply you will be mistreated or worse killed!the preventive mesure is to make a good watch 360° a good pair of binoculars to have time to set the FT, the best is the surprise effect ...a FT is like a shot gun very effective a 50 feet...

Exactly! I've tried shooting a rifle off a boat before and it is a whole lot harder than the Rambos think it is.
