Re: Hiding Meth On Board

Oddly enough, it is apparently done all the time.

Knew of a guy who got paranoid they were on to him, so he moved his lab to a pontoon boat on the lake. Not a good hiding place for a geetered up skipper on the lake at night.

Also while cruising an unnamed portion of the Gulf coast, I talked to some Customs and Immigration guys whose task was busting labs and illegals aliens (yes, together) in the shrimping fleet.

Wouldn't you just love to board a fishing vessel loaded with people who have nothing to lose, on a powder keg, wound up tighter than Dick's hatband on meth?

I'll skip it. And the scourge that is meth. The meth epidemic worldwide will make crack look like a burp comparatively when all is said and done. The drug's effects on the children in meth homes are bad physically, but a tragedy developmentally. Sadder than sad.

BTW, no need for a lab at all. If you have a 2-liter plastic bottle (preferably clear) you are in business.

How about storing all the meth in little single-serving ampules packed into your sea-anchor? Then, have your "customers" scuba-dive down to the sea-anchor to claim their meth-ampules (on the honor system, of course). You could double-dip those customers by charging rent on the scuba gear. Like that Jaqueline Bissett movie, Jaws.

Great idea!! Tweekers are certainly among the most trustworthy folks afloat! Cheers, Phil

Re: Hiding Meth On Board

I could hide the entire operation in the FH diagonal bracing. A couple of Munchkins who are illegal aliens (of course) would be in there as well just cookin it up. The Coasties would never think of looking under the boat.

I'm pretty sure the Munchkins prefer "undocumented" to "illegal".
