Bad news... quite the yacht, too. While I'm sure none of this was part of their plans, with the well-publicized activities of the Somalians one has to wonder why you'd put yourself in jeopardy this way.

But I guess no one really knows how far afield these pirates are straying....

They have an impressive blog too...
