While on a mooring a private boat was boarded by two masked men.  The owner heard them climbing on board and as the masked men were attempting to open the companionway doors he yelled. The boarders ran with the owner in pursuit. As the masked men jumped in their dinghy they fired a shot at the owner which missed and went through the Bimini approx 3 feet from the yacht owner’s head.
