Turns out pirates aren't just in the past, or desperate Somalis. There's a news report from Seattle about a man who appears to have stolen one of the Victoria Clippers. These high-speed ships shuttle people between Seattle and Victoria.
The incident seems to have ended with no boats sunk or people lost at sea. But there's a point to advise any would-be pirates on the Salish Sea: Just because a vessel has a joystick control does NOT mean that you can expect to use your Xbox expertise successfully!
