I have somehow managed to go my entire life without being pirated, and honestly it's been pretty easy. I also know quite a few boat owners (yes it's true, I'm poor, but vaguely acquainted with the well-off), none of whom have been beaten, nor bloodied, nor pillaged, nor plundered by sea-ruffians. And do you know why that is? It's because when they take a vacation they don't gas up and head for the horn of Africa.
Honestly, it's like flying your plane exclusively over missile testing sites, or driving your Mercedes through Compton with a KKK sticker in the window. It's not prudent, and I'd advise against it.

Anyway, until tomorrow, stay safe, and don't go gettin' yourselves pirated.
