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

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