The family was anchored back in a small and narrow cove on Mohave and were all floating and having fun in the water. We watched as a boat entered the cove and slowly started heading our way, not a problem and we didn't even think twice of it. When they got within 20 yards they shut of their motor and one of them stood up and shouted "We are here to rob you!" All of a sudden my mind went into high gear... I'm with my family and at least 20 feet from the boat? I get to the boat, then what am I suppose to do? After 10 seconds they yell "Just kidding" fired up and pulled away.
Since then I have thought about this often. As of 2010, firearms are allowed in all National Parks, but this isn't a National Park it is the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and from my understanding firearms are still illegal in National Recreation Areas. This is the first time in my 30 years of boating I have ever even thought about this situation. Anyone ever had a problem?
