shiver me timbers

a ransom is being demanded by Somali pirates for a British couple who sailed their yacht into waters around those parts. If I had a yacht I might sail it in the Mediterranean, parts of the Caribbean, the Baltic perhaps in summer. Not off the Horn of Africa. The phrase "more money than sense" springs to mind. Deserve (almost) all they get. Are they going to pay back any rescuers they might have? Hein?

They were captured off the Seychelles, they weren't just going for a jolly off Somalia.
