Thanks for that interesting information. Didn't know about that. During my time down there we met the guards at the hotels all along the coast.

Cruise ships passing through the pirate danger zone take on board armed security agents who invariably come from and return to depot ships which are usually converted vessels such as old pilot vessels, supply ships and trawlers. This avoids them having to land anywhere ashore carrying firearms. One of these security guard vessels was arrested in India recently when it entered port with weapons on board

She was the armed guard mothership vessel used by I think Solace to store armes for transferring to vessels requiring security guards and protection in the high risk area.

Why were they transferring weapons to a trawler ?
