Why can't the people sailing the ships, just arm them selves and shoot the thieves, when they try to board the ship. Shooting down on a group of clowns in a rubber boat would be a lot of fun.
Any people who are dependant on some one else defending them, end up locked in a little room.
Because not everyone has the ability or training to successfully use firearms in defense, and instead will end up dead.
But I agree with the idea behind what you're saying. I don't know why they don't pay a small group of contractors to pull security for a ship that has to pass by an area like this.
