    PARIS, France (AP) -- "Pirates seized control of a French luxury yacht carrying 30 crew members Friday in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia's coast, the French government and the ship's owner said.

    Attackers stormed the three-mast Le Ponant as it returned without passengers from the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean, toward the Mediterranean Sea, said officials with French maritime transport company CMA-CGM.

    "This is a blatant act of piracy," Prime Minister Francois Fillon told reporters while on a visit to Brussels. "The Defense and Foreign ministries are mobilized to act as quickly as possible, I hope in the coming minutes or hours to try to win the freedom of these hostages.""

    I sailed across the pacific for 2 years, some of it with my father on a sailboat he had, and he told me about Pirates on the seas, and we carried quite an aresnal of weapons in case of attack.

    You should of seen some of the weapons, I can't remember them all, but at the time we had an Israel uzi fully automatic, what a machine, LOL...

    @DasFox - i heard the best trick is to make your boat look like shit.
    Did you encounter any "aggression"?
    Where did you sail?
    I have done a few trips, the type of people on board are the most important element.
