Is it just me, or does that boat have a BEAK on the bow. Reggie got a new fishing-boat line?

Kind of like the desert bandits that stopped and stole a bunch of race vehicles during the Dakar Rally a few years back. Never caught them and found the vehicles stripped in the desert.

It really is amazing that you have to consider such things when going to foreign territory. It damn sure happens though.

I can't tell you how many folks have told me to never go to the Bahamas in the Cigarette. They say it can be very dangerous around the remote islands.

I have heard the same thing about the Bahamas. When we went to chub Cay and out fishing the captain always had a pistol on him, and there were four machine guns on the Hatteras. The Captain told me things can happen.

From what I read, it is the wild west out there. One stolen oil tanker is worth a LOT! and there is very little regulation.
