Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island
Dang, that is awful... I'm glad they survived...
I hope the authorities catch the trash responsible for that attack.
Haborless, keep in mind that the flare can bounce off the target and burn through your boat - water will not put it out, only make things worse. Using flares for self defense should be limited to shooting your target before they get into your boat. And you should practice before you rely on it. Spear guns can be used as well.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
