Italian expat faces recklessness causing death charge over fatal boat collision

Recommended Posts

 
You do realise that many motor cruisers have two helms? 


And many now even have remote helms.

 Anyway, you can/must call it recklessness driving/steering when his boat hits a much smaller one.

That's the Thai lame excuse motorcycles use, how about for once they actually accept responsibility for their  actions?

The Italian seems to have a yacht/boat that should have the right instruments to see other vehicles on the ocean while he's steering his craft. You can hardly blame the poor fisherman for not having any nautical instruments on board, can you? 

 

   Anyway, you can/must call it recklessness driving/steering when his boat hits a much smaller one.

 

   What chance would an older man have not to get hit by a much bigger and heavier boat? The Italian was of course not trying to kill anybody, and he just wanted to enjoy his hobby.

 

   Besides the 200 K for the hospital, the family is also asking for 1.5 million baht compensation for the poor bloke's death.

 

     It was a preventable accident, not knowing the law on the oceans, but I'd think that you should always be aware of what's in front of you. 

 

     

 

  

 

   

why would a life be worth more than what government wanted to pay for the dead people on  a recent bus crash ? => 50.000 baht MAX

 

at 74 he was at the end of the line ... did he work so much to support his family (all handicapped and disabled to work for themselves?)

 

farang = let's ask whatever we want and see of the nice THAI judge will follow

 

always ask much more than expected

At least the Italian doesn't have to worry about 800/400 and 90 reports while he enjoys the comforts of the Hinoy Hilton.

NEVER gonna happen.  But I wish the same.  Thais are "elites" by default.

Another case of blaming the foreigner who has money they can extort from him - all about money and not about who is actually to blame

What a stupid comment!!! It were much more intelligent if you check the maritim law before you write stupid things.

What instruments will detect a wooden boat and send out a screaming alarm ? you cant be serious there is no such thing or the mega ships would be using them instead of running over small boats in shipping lanes


The Mark I eyeball usually works.

That's why all boats must have a 24-hour watch. Period. Without it, you won't get insurance and then, theoretically, you shouldn't put to sea. 

There are 'rules of the road' and need to be complied with. They're designed to avoid this very thing.

Whether either party knew about these actual rules or not is kinda irrelevant (but they should); both parties should have done everything possible to avoid collision. 

“I am still waiting for the forensic police to conclude their investigation. That may take about a month. They are very busy but said they would try to complete their investigation as soon as possible,” Capt Somkiet said.
 

  • Were both boats power-boats and both under power? (Power gives way to sail - or row boat).
  • What angle were they to each other? (Red gives way to green)
  • and so on.

 

Lot of information we don't know about.
