Capt Len is on a distinguished road
Venezuela speaks Spanish. Brazil speaks Portuguese. They are different countries.Both have some citizens who want your stuff. My understanding is that Peter Blake was killed as he rushed on deck against intruders, . This also happened in the BC Gulf Islands a few year ago. and in Mexico yesterday .It can happen any where and any time .Not to live in fear but a bit of homework and preparedness may avoid the common armed visitor who sees an easy mark. No easy answers, but Slocum used carpet tacks.
