Just messin' withya Zee
REI or A16 in San Diego
carries Bear Spray by Paul Mitchell
. Won't be at the Big 5 chain style places usually. Gonna be an outdoors specialty shop. I saw a brief article in Lat38 about tazers that come in small colored cases like make-up compacts.
I do think the best strategy and the one I will gear
up for with a loudspeaker and decklights is when in questionable areas to stay reasonably close to other boats/shore faiclities, bar the door and have a "panic button" that can be used from inside the boat
to set off a lot of loud on-deck noise
and flashing lights. Theives hate the attention don't they?
Do I trust myself if owning some sort of defensive "weapon" to be able to use it properly and not let it get taken and used against me? If I'm honest I'd say no. I know a couple of sailors who I've thought would be able to use a pistol (and carried them on board)or anything else but both them were big-time a#&holes sooo...
What do you sail on pullord?
