The ‘seasteading’ couple, that have set up a ‘floating’ home some 15 nautical miles off Phuket’s coast, are now the subject of an official complaint by the Thai Third Naval Area Command (that oversee Phuket’s security).

 

Chad Andrew Elwartowski and his Thai wife, Supranee Thepdet are said to be in violation of the the Thai Criminal Code.

The couple is believed to be in the early days of setting up an ‘independent state’ in international waters. A source, speaking to the Bangkok Post, believes the couple are preparing paperwork to codify their new ‘seasteading’ status in international waters.

Being in Thailand these seasteaders might pick up bad habits and throw their rubbish over the side.

Get PM Prayut on the case; he will rid Thailand of these unwelcome and undesirable interlopers with his trusty Article 44.

That lasted about as long as a new political party who successfully challenged the status quo.

The solution is to more beyond the Thai territorial limit of 24 nm.

high seas

all parts of the sea that are not included in the territorial sea or in the internal waters of a state (Geneva Convention on the High Seas 1958). The territorial sea was fixed as not exceeding 12 nautical miles by the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea. The UK has fixed its limit at 12 miles in the Territorial Sea Act 1987. States have very limited rights in relation to the high seas.

 

 

 

Thailand be so very careful , not that they care

Must be some kind of publicity stunt. A big storm would smash that joint into shards of glass and match sticks in no time.

Oh Buoy!

Can investing  in international waters have any assurance for the  first 20 suckers customers or will that depend on the rules of the  Seastead State?

Up  anchor and Away Me Hearties!

Puts a new face on Pirates  me thinks.
