I thought Thailand likes to be a hub, seasteading is a trending concept, Thailand should be embracing it, building and servicing seasteads. 

They are a hub - just that the wheels have fallen off!

How dare a farang muck up, the new hub (aka Thai Petticoat or TP) plans.

 

Thai Navy is on their way, the "lady buoys" are kitted up, and the pink subs are outfitted....

visarunner "why no one think about the stupidity of such a structure , did this person or persons think about enter and leaving his "new" state. Looks like a prison to me. Entering Thailand, going out to Sea and than ????????????? Don't we have real problems at hand. Why he not do in front of US coast? Why always blame Thailand?" Seriously dude - Are you for Real ? Float a raft and expect the death penalty - where the heck do you come from if you consider this normal ?

Is it professional  to talk about any kind of punishment  without having even warrants and or made  any arrests and or having any legal case pending  in court? Isn’t this up to the judges?

Talking about death penalty for a couple just being on a ship is ridiculous.

Mr & Ms Bitcoin Homestead clearly have no idea what they have got themselves into. The Junta must have wet themselves in excitement when they saw the first reports on this come up. A nice juicy sovereignty issue with which to deflect loads of flag-waving nationalists (both pro & anti-junta) away from the extremely disappointing election for a few days, so the old hands have more time to .... do the books

Okay I may be among the minority here but I think the 'seasteaders' should have thought this one through a bit more. They must have had some idea of what's been going on in the past few years under a junta government and the current 'witch hunt' on the political opposition front. It was bound to happen that having such a structure in the internationally recognized contiguous and economic zone, without prior consultation, that the junta would be on the offensive. I do admit that the death penalty or life sentence is far too excessive a punishment but then with the junta they'll do what they want to do and d**n everyone else. I would have thought a simple warning then boarding/confiscation would have sent the right signals.

 

Exactly.

Also regardless of what other people in this forum say, Thailand certainly does not want more 'seasteaders' like this. What the Navy is doing is basically discouraging others to do the same.

A whopping 14 nautical miles out, I'm surprised that the Thai navy vessel didn't sink on its way that far from shore. Who would have thought they're actually seaworthy, I'm in awe.

This extreme threat, lacking in any diplomacy, is just one more blow to Thai tourism.

"Thai navy boards cabin of fugitive 'seasteaders' facing death penalty"

 

The above headline has been all over North American news for days, front and centre. Words like

"facing death penalty" would hardly be conducive to creating a warm and fuzzy feeling, as it relates to vacationing in Thailand. Perhaps a bit extreme. Why not hold back on the threat.

Noteworthy: There has been other negative stories of late. Gang them all together and it doesn't sound like a very safe place to visit.

Land of smiles is no longer a valid description that describes day to day living here.  With immigration in hot pursuit and shaking down every foreigner, road kill maintainig epidemic international levels, and the cost of living rising here...Not the same warm and fuzzy cheap place it used to be anymore.

No.

Would you like the idea that a group of Thai 'seasteaders' set up their offshore home in the waters anywhere near your home country?

 

Am sure any means and "legal loophole" would be utilized to kick them out. It is no different here.

along with his partner Supranee Thepdet, whose Facebook page describes her as a "Bitcoin expert,Trader, Chef, seastead Pioneer".

 

"Bitcoin expert"?  "Trader"? "Chef"? "seastead Pioneer"?

 

So, a loony criminal who sells worthless currency to other people and occasionally cooks a meal or two?

 

If you don't want to obey the laws of Thailand, put your "seastead" in the middle of the ocean.

 

Wait.  That would mean they couldn't travel easily to Thailand in order to take advantage of everything Thailand has to offer.

 

Lazy freeloaders. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

...and when he docks in Thailand, immigration can meet him to ask to see his visa...every time!
