Doesn't look like much of yacht for a multi-millionaire(?).
THat is about what I was thinking. Looks like the boats they rent out per day to go deep sea fishing out of Ft Lauderdale FL.

You can be sure the dollar to peso conversion rate was at its highest for the commander of the jail cell and the judge who released him.
I am sure someone will be shopping for a new Range Rover this weekend.

I'd love to hang with McAfee for an evening. He's quite the character.

For such a bright guy, he's quite the idiot.
I understand the need for protection while
sailing through the Caribbean, I think one
pistol with a few extra magazines should
be enough. If you look at his more recent
history, he seems to have a bit of a Rambo
complex. Like I said in another thread just
recently, just because you can do something
doesn't always mean you should.

One article I read said he is also wanted by
Uncle Sam for tax evasion. He's done.

He lost much of his wealth after being charged with murder in Belize. That yacht although does not look like much appears to be a Viking convertible. Even a used late model, cost minimum one million. uncle sugar wants him for income tax evasion. He will do a little time when he returns home. He definitely has a few stories to tell.

depends on if you are looking to attract attention or not.
This boat is plenty for traveling around the world. Sportfishers are fast and comfortable.
Anyone who travels by boat is armed if they have a lick of sense.
You quickly see what lonely feels like offshore at night all by yourself.
Easy to sneak up on a boat at night unless it has radar and proximity alarm.
I spent a good deal of time working offshore and being able to defend yourself is comforting, otherwise you are helpless and in danger of attack, kidnapping or robbery.
Guns are great on boats as bullets go through fiberglass like a knife through warm butter.
No one wants to "disappear at sea".

Perhaps his social media "tweet" of...."Leaving detention (don't judge my looks - four days of confinement). I was well treated. My superiors were friendly and helpful. In spite of the helpful circumstances, we've decided to move on. More later".....jumped the gun.
It does not seem as if it was his decision to move on, and most definitely not in the direction planned.

It will show up as a deportation, and thereby, most definitely will be presented to support the fear mongering, false statistic based arguments of one or two persons.
