>>28442867 Sea? Yes. Most ports in the world? No Most countries will imprison you if they find firearms aboard when you make port. I used to keep a rusty $50 12 gauge aboard my boat for pirates. If I had to make port in an unfriendly country, I could chunk it overboard.
>>28443100 If you're off the coast of somalia, maybe. But most of the time you'll be seeing knives rather than guns. Also pirates are generally pussies anyway. Couple shots across the bow will deter most of them.
Yeah, makes me wonder. I was at the Bahamas recently reminiscing about a possible mother base I could buy off an island, and while I was talking to the guy all I could see around us were these GIANT, WHITE, COC-, erm, yachts. It made me wonder if many of them kept something on board to protect their multi million dollar investments...
>>28442867 This reminds of a book I couldn't remember for the book thread, "The island" by Peter Benchley. I think it's pretty damn /k/. Pirates, main character loves guns. Browning ma deuce gets used on pirates.
>>28448837 Nope. When I was there a week ago I talked with a couple that were like 30. With them sailing from some Texas port, and hanging a trio of flags (A gadsend, Texan, and American.) I asked the same question posed earlier. They responded with, "Nope, we lost them at sea before we entered port. ;)" I then learned that they do something where they keep dive gear on board and recovered a box that has full autos below the 20ft of the Bahamian sea near a reef a few miles away from shore. When I asked why they had escalated to full autos they mentioned when they tried to use just a bolt against Haitian pirates that went after them when they loved to sail. Needless to say, they never were boarded again.
>>28448782 If you can afford a yacht you have a paid crew, and paid crews are your personal defence. If you believed to be at risk you could easily afford one or two guards with weapons and the cost to replace them if they're chucked overboard before making port. It's literally peanuts compared to the costs of running a yacht, the "parking space" alone costs easily in the 3k-4k per day range in most respectable "rich yacht people" ports.
>>28442867 Yes, Most countries allow you to enter with firearms on a boat, you just have to declare them, some countries require you to keep them locked up in a sealed container of some sort. Others have the police hold them for you until you're ready to clear out. Source "World Cruising Guide" by Jimmy Cornell.
