    I was dumb enough to volunteer; I crewed on the delivery of a 50' catamaran from the boatyard in La Belle France to the Seychelles for a yacht charter company. It seemed like a good idea at the time and besides the pirates were only part-time amateurs back in 2001; we were more concerned about triggerhappy Egyptian squaddies/policemen/security guards/door wallahs/gate wallahs. They all have AK47s for reasons which escape me, and it was in the middle of ramadan so they were all off their heads with low blood sugar.

      lol, you know Wallah is just a swear word in Arabic, and pronounced slightly differently (and I really mean slightly) can mean cigarette lighter.
      I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....
