I've had a M1919 but would prefer a minimi or M239 as ammo is easier to find. All might not be too accurate at sea but they work wonders at creating a clar buffer area around the boat

You have not provided any statistics to back your claim...nor do any exist.
Hey...I can give examples too...
Boat rage ends in attempted murder charge - Boston, MA - Town Online
See how DANGEROUS it is staying in USA marinas? And who knows what could happen on the highway with that trailer. I'd be more concerned about road rage if I were you.

Thanks Cam for that post. I alway thought the US was too dangerous to go cruising in. I've just struck it off my list.

Obviously best friends also need to be closely watched. Next time I go cruising with my mates I'll make sure I have some sort of weapon close at hand to defend myself.

Now I'm sorry I brought a rubber dinghy. I knew I should of gone for that hard aluminum dinghy. So much better for ramming....

Great post Cam, keep it up, Ilenart

Here's what every sailor needs for protection while cruising - they used it on a personal water craft, but it would work on any hostile.
