Yeah my brain somehow mixes both of those up no matter what I do. Sorry about that my mistake.

My point was you can hire paramilitaries, keep automatic weapons on board, go in a flotilla at full speed with full light discipline and the risk is still there. The risks in South Africa are weather, current and a lot of container ships.
