Yacht Security site

Moved the main site from to

I had the new site up, but was using the yacht blogs site because it was easier (more user friendly). Due to recent changes there, I have reverted back to the floridayachtsecurity site.

Stop by, let me know what you think. Thanks.

Transfer of Site

Just a reminder, I am making the primary yacht security blog. My blog on Yau Kung Mun will remain here on this host.

Thanks for all who read/follow, and let me know what you think of the switch.

Thieves in Viequez, Spanish Virgins Warning

Got this from the forums - seems there is a bit of a problem the locals know of, but it hasn't reached the cruising community.
Do your research prior to cruising, and be vigilant and aware of your surroundings. It only takes one incident to ruin a trip.

Update on the Sanford Shooting and Florida Law

I posted in general terms about the shooting of the Sanford teenager, and mentioned the Orlando Gun Lawyers Blog.

He has posted on the shooting, from his perspective, here.


Stolen Valor

Not a post about s stolen vessel - about people claiming to be something they are not. Claims that fall under Stolen Valor.

Some veterans are doing their part in exposing the people who make false claims. As a veteran, my heart-felt thanks go to them, for exposing the lies.

Man Overboard

From GCaptain - an excellent article on the use of devices such as SARTS, EPIRB and PLB's and their usage in man overboard situations.

 We believe that yacht security is not just about guns and alarms - it's about protecting your loved ones in all situations.
