|The MV Lissa moored at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour Western Australia July 10th 2006. The Lissa is owned by veteran sailor Chris Packer who in late 2004 was arrested as he sailed the vessel into Benoa harbour in Bali and charged with gun running. The fact was that he was carrying arms as protection against pirates, (very common in the Malacca Straits), but had not declared them to Indonesia. The Lissa was formerly known as the Solklint and registered at Slite in Gotland. Original details, including a picture can be found at http://www.kommandobryggan.se/last/solklint.htm
