The Effects of Piracy

Eagle One reports on how the piracy off the coast of Somalia is threatening to end food shipments. He also makes some typically sensible proposals for
dealing with the situation.

Here is a proven solution....

For extra credit, who can identify the ship?

That looks like the ship in the movie "The Sand Pebbles".

Or maybe not. It's been a hell of a long time since I saw that flick.

3 That was fast.
Steven Den Beste wins the cruel trick question.
The vessel is an elaborate prop...the river gunboat San Pablo from the film Sand Pebbles.

It does look similar to several  US river gunboats such as the Paynay...because it was designed to.

If only I had a Gluchko plushie...instead of these cat ears.

4 One of the things that was cool about that movie was Steve McQueen using a BAR.
