You can also see the engines off the boats, some are simply chain sawed off the transom, everything from 15hp 2 strokes to 250hp off shore monsters.
Don't agree, the cops are actually very friendly to genuine "people".
The seized stuff has to be destroyed.
The Gib police do provide a secure crossing.......it's really not a good place to be at night. Let's say that you and / or your crew are worth a few ounces of lead. And it really is that simple. Life has a different meaning for African smugglers. Waving a Brit passport doesn't work.
Actually it happens all over the Med..
Windermere here I come!!!
