Phuket province set up a working panel to follow the legal issues.

Why? Is Phuket not a part of Thailand now? 

Why do they need a working panel - surely the issue is for central Government NOT Phuket provincial authorities.

Hello

 

It might be not exactly the same but I remember Radio Caroline  was doing his radio program from a boat located in international waters, out of GB waters in the years 60..

I imagine if something could have been done, then surely the GB government would have done..

Maybe another case as it was on a boat and not on a fixed structure..

I do imagine, this guy has taken advice before doing this and obviously is seeking advertising and fame

Have a nice day and happy Easter to everybody

It seems that people will rush to the defense of every loonie and crackpot who comes up against Thai law.  Try building a structure 12 miles off the coast of your own country, yet alone a foreign one, declare it an independent state, and see what happens.  

Several people have tried this off the UK coast and run into similar arguments against their legality. I am curious to know why no action was taken until the structure was complete - unless they had a genie construct it overnight it must  have taken several months to build.

Just one question... What was he thinking? establishing a domicile outside the territorial waters of Thailand? over the past 100 years, this country went out ot wars for much less than that, and as long he plan to reach "his home" from Thai territory, he will have problems...

On one level, his project could, and probably should be written off as the antics of an eccentric. On the other hand, with China building actual islands in disputed waters in the South China Sea, maybe the reaction of the gov is not nearly as comic and paranoid as it might at first seem.

My guess is that it was built on land and towed out to sea.

Reading through the Ocean.Builders web site it all looks a bit fishy. Selling 'seasteads' through an 'Initial Seastead Offering' planned for 15 April, money up front, lots of update posts by 'Elwar' including:

 

"Our current plan is focused on seasteads in international waters in Thailand so that we can mass produce for a single location to keep prices down and have a seasteading community in one place to grow ... Thailand has many benefits for early seasteads including low prices, perfect sea conditions (low waves, no hurricanes/typhoons) and a country that thrives on tourism while leaving most businesses alone".

 

And payment in anything other than bitcoin would be "difficult" ...

 

"And of course we will be accepting bitcoin. Anything else will be more difficult."

Unfortunately, you can run but you cannot hide.  Running seems to be useless today as well.  Good luck to this gentleman, he needs it.

As soon as he files his TM30 he is done.

This is Thailand, a real country, not Disneyland.  Imagine if a tourist from Ghana comes to your country, and with a local paid girlfriend do the same in your own homecountry? The utter disrespect.

And now running and hiding??? 

All the posters who are living in Thailand and as usual are slamming Thailand with their cynical comments about Thai authorities, plz if you dont like it here, why are you here?time to go back perhaps.

He forgot one thing as that's he didn't have a Navy to back up his claim.  He should have instead first built his own private Navy and then built his floating house.  Do it like how China is doing it all over the South China Sea.
