That's $480,769.23 a week to sail around the sunny waters off Somalia looking innocent and blowing the krap out of anyone who decides that you are a target. Okay, there's a little outlay to buy a reasonably sized, very fast boat and some serious firepower, but that's still a lot of money.

Don't people have Navies for that sort of thing or will Letters of Marque be reintroduced?

I think I would ask to be paid in advance. :p
I should imagine that the magic words "Export Credit Guarantee"(reads: the US Gov't pays) were written into the contract. :wink:

A british security company used to have something similar with the puntland government (most easterly point of former somalia). It ended in the courts, enforcement of territorial waters can be tricky if the country isn't officially recognised by atlas makers. One ship had a 105 recoiless jury rigged as main armament.
