    Default Piracy, again

    Pirates have boarded a Norwegian bulker and a Greek tanker off the coast of Togo and Benin, kidnapping crew members off both vessels.

    Saw that on the news yesterday but it was a very small article, blink and miss it.

    Piracy will never be completely gone, there will always be those who will try to get away with it.

    Going through Suez a small boat came very close to the ships side.
    The occupants did not look very savory and the bosun had it in his head they were about to attempt to board.

    It is quite amazing how these local have no love of hot salt water being hosed on them, but then again they did not look like the type that bather too often.
