As far as the hijack, with the amount of money involved in the refugees trade, this is only a matter of time and there will be more of it. Yachts are relatively easy to steal, make a quick run with 50 or 100 people paying thousands, and run away. Zero investments (watch for the ones that get put to bed with full tanks) and very little chance to get caught.

I remember seeing the same with the drug trade coming up from the islands, until volume got to where containers were more efficient, and the CG got serious with individual vessels out there......
