Yes; and whoever owned that 11.5 million in gold likely has enough cash and enough clout to track down whoever took it. Wouldn't want to be them.

I'm merely commenting on the shabby appearance and run down of the boat. I mean, I expected to see a decommissioned Naval vessel, or a yacht or something.

Nearly 500 Lbs of gold is a lot to be carrying for fishermen moonlighting on the side...

Dang, a similar thing happened to my bullion.

I was out fishing with all of my gold and silver bullion when a huge swell came and tipped my boat. I was able to save my fishing rods but my relics are at the bottom of the lake.

Nothing fishy, just trying to avoid duties, taxes and bribes probably.

Indeed... This is a perfect looking "cover" boat to run operations without attracting attention. However, it would be difficult to trust the crew with soooo much temptation.

Something definitely wrong here. I mean, if this was their business, then how about the Diamonds they would have been carrying?

Why would you move that much gold without having someone like Triple Canopy or Academi onboard for armed protection?

little more detail in this link.

Snip; A senior official from the Guyana Gold Board, the government state agency charged with buying gold, said that they have received reports of the attack. However, the official made it clear that no permission was given in recent times to have gold transported via sea out of Guyana.


Snip;Huggins said it was a legal shipment that was being transshipped through Curacao and officials in the island had been advised in advance that it was coming as part of normal security protocols. He declined to disclose the eventual destination of the metal.


“Authorities knew of the shipment because the official procedure was followed,” the spokesman said.

Huggins said that guards to the port area let the assailants inside a restricted area in the mistaken belief that they were customs officials. The men’s jackets had the word “policein English but in Curacao the word would be written in Papiamento, one of the island’s three official languages, as “polis.
