Ballsy move that....  

 

I wonder how much of the damage was pre-exisiting. This is going to cost him.

If Thai prisons are anything like US prisons he will end up with some hull damage.

Definitely an idiot. Nicking a boat is pretty stupid for starters, but then obviously realising he was in trouble, left the island on Saturday, was in Bangkok Sunday and didn't think that it might be advisable if he really wanted to run away, to get out of the country immediately. Arrest warrant made five days after he nicked it, but he was still here. Not much sympathy for him from me, or from many other posters I suspect. As has been said before, You can't fix stupid.

Possibly alcohol induced stupidity, then thinking he was off the island that he'd got far enough away !

Bet he was shocked when he got pulled at the airport thinking he was a couple of hours away from a clean get-away... gonna cost him one way or another !

If you're gonna do a runner, then do it; don't muck about spending one last night in Bangkok. As a thought experiment I often wonder what I'd do if I got in deep sh#t. I think it'd be a race to the airport. One argument for carrying your passport and a credit card at all times, against the perceived wisdom. Swings and roundabouts really, you risk losing them cos you're taking precautions v. a very unlikely event; on the other hand, it happens.

So he stole a boat (against the law) costing the operator his living for a while. And you are only concerned with him being scammed out of a few baht.  

I would be concerned about the scamming, but the stupid act of stealing the boat if he did is another thing.

 

I had an accident last year after my foot slipped while backing out of my house causing damage to the neighbours parked car, which was new.

Just a dent in the rear quarter.

I ended up paying her, alongside the insurance rep 100,000 Thai baht.

I had witnesses and she signed a receipt for full payment of damages written in Thai and English.

 

Now one year later the insurance rep rang my Thai wife and threatened her with court action if we did not pay him 70,000 Bht more, He claimed we did not pay the 100,000 to the owner of the vehicle.

We  sent him the bank records and told him to talk to our witness who is like the village headman.

Never heard from him again.

 

I suspect the insurance mans company repaired the vehicle and the assessor said it was a hit and run, then they pocketed the 100k or the owner of the vehicle pocketed the 100k and claimed we never paid her.

Lucky we kept records or might have been more trouble.

So the boat guy was stupid, and has left himself wide open to extortion.
