US-based International Maritime Security Network is developing a system for yachts that will shower approaching pirates with slick, foul-smelling green liquid.
“The last thing they want to do now is shoot anything,” said chief executive officer Tim Nease.
“They want to jump in the water, and hopefully sharks are hungry. You just have to get away from it. You can’t breathe in, you can’t breathe out. It burns, it stinks. It’s nasty.”
