Whoa! Now THAT’S a boarding action!

Not too bad, but you should find someone in the Hong Kong boat police to talk to. A friend of my parents has been in it for 30 years or so, and has various stories, including the use of your own 50knot speedboats prow to knock the outboard engines off the smugglers high speed speedboat.
At high speed.
Or marine boarding actions at similar velocities.
the japanese are really aggressive.
… and skilled! Boarding a boat like that is definitely not an easy thing to do.
I’ve been reading O’Brian so this fits right in with my mental landscape …okay, a bit modern …and with engines, but still.
