Well, that was their first mistake.

...or, wait, what? Jetskis?

Berthoud, Colo., native Tiffany Hartley, 29, told The Denver Post she and her husband, David, were sightseeing Thursday on private personal watercraft on the Mexican side of Falcon Lake when pirates in three speedboats started chasing them.
Good grief. It wasn't exactly a secret down here what was happening on Falcon Lake with the pirates. How could these people have been so stupid and/or crazy as to be going out on the water in jetskis, of all things? I guess I missed that in the previous stories. At any rate, personally I wouldn't be venturing out that far in anything smaller than a jon boat. And even that would be risky because of the flat bottom design that works better in calmer waters. At least you'd be able to haul more armament in it, though...
