Somalia pirates...

One thing we get asked about a LOT is what do we do about pirates here in the Caribbean. Truth is, outside of certain Government officials and some so-called marine professionals here in the Caribbean there is really not piracy in the accepted sense. Which is not to say that there are not some villians who operate off boats but they are more akin to muggers than proper pirates.

Not so off the coast of Africa. These days prudent cruisers are giving Somalia a wide berth! Today's Big Picture has some awesome pictures of what modern day piracy really looks like..Riveting stuff!
