Hawk,

In case you are interested the Oz sailor is a slightly eccentirc but wealthy individual who owns an old freighter that he converted into his private motor yacht. It's a lovely old thing, not huge but big enough. I saw her when she was in Sydney a couple of years back.

He was charged on the basis that he had not declared the weapons. From memory he claimed he had. They where supposedly only for defence against
piracy.

I don't remember if he was acquited or he did a deal but he was not jailed.
