With 2 cowards like that, their boat must have been named “The Raging Queen”

He has a purple heart, you know.

As you can see from some of our sea-farin’ Freepers, you gotta know the ropes.

Somehow, I don’t think Captain Hooke Silver is going to be of much help in this case. (flash animation)

He told us. He wouldn’t lie, he’s a Senator. He was also in Cambodia on Christmas, was hand in hand with Algore in inventing the internet, was the model for Goofy in Disneyland, Love story was not written by him but could have been, and he secretly wishes he was a seagull.

This is an act of piracy and should be treated as such. If you fly the colors and board other people’s property I call that an act of piracy.

Ignoring the threat, the man told the Coast Guard, who arrested Scott Stanton, 30, and Steve Jette, 36, for breaking and entering, threatening to commit a crime, and intimidation of a witness.

I am really surprised there isn't a charge of drunk boating, as well.

I live aboard a small cruising sailboat and having known hundreds of my ilk, can state the the response of a boat owner seeing a stranger set foot aboard uninvited, as similar to the homeowner who sees a bedroom window open and a stranger enter. Even
friends ask for permission aboard out of þoliteness; strangers ignore this courtesy at their peril.

Can't. It's expressly forbidden by the geneva convention under "cruel and inhumane punishment". But We can still turn their innards to goo with repeated rides on the matterhorn.
