HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

It’s not easy boarding an oil tanker. You speed up in your Zodiac, climb up ladders with your Uzis and hope the crew doesn’t aim a water cannon. Then you find the crew, tie them up, demand their valuables, sail the ship somewhere private and transfer the oil to another ship.

And like any stolen goods you need a buyer.
