My dad was just reading TIME magazine and in 2004 there were 325 incidents all over the world involving pirates. The majority of the incidents were in Indonesia.

We were just trying to brainstorm what you could do to protect yourself from pirates. Using Octopus as the classic example of a megayacht, we attempted to come up with ways for protection. We decided that machine guns should be on board with the occasional bazooka. Also, some of the crew members should be ex Navy or Coast Guard veterans. That way they would have experience with guns and know what to do (hopefully). Any other thoughts? It's amazing to think about how vunerable yachts are to attack.
