Granted, but one was a huge 8,000 ton RORO ferry, while this was a small craft hardly worth the scrap value. Why did they even raise it?

 

I stand by my statement - only in Thailand would they consider making money from such a sensitive disaster.

Try Titanic, and see how much money (and still ongoing) has been made from that disaster.

I certainly didn't mean family only, though, that is the preferred method as it keeps it in the family.

Personal enrichment by whatever means are necessary, family, or no family.

"Off-topic" ? Are you a Mod now?

That is what the poster I responded to, a response with which you disagreed by mentioning family connections, claimed.

 

Why the continuous insults? Even sadder than it was.

The prop/s and shaft/s would probably be the only things you could get a dollar for, seems a bit futile.

No for Thailand haters its only Thailand that makes money of disasters. Its boring sometimes they got burned by a girl or can't afford a visa and keep putting Thailand down.

 

Sure there is a lot of corruption in this country but in This case only one place they could store it (big enough) so its not as if the people in charge had much of a choice.

Since it is incorrect it shows ignorance.

So tell me where it is incorrect.

You show me the siblings and cousins involved, and I'll retract. But it is really easy: there is only 1 shipyard on Phuket capable of serving a boat that size.

 

The post I reacted to stated " You got it wrong there. In Thailand it´s not called tender process. They call it cousin ans siblings process. "

I think that you are confusing me with another poster. I have no idea, but why don't you go back to that post and ask that poster. Only try to get some links or press reports to back it up.

Wonder who gets the storage costs?

The Rattanachai Shipyard that charges AMLO for storing it!

Only in Thailand.

 

What sick mind looks at that and thinks "We can make money from that".

 

Did they advertise it in China?

It is an illegal asset confiscated by AMLO, they have no choice, it happens in most countries, including yours!

100 000 per month? Must be another chromosome problem. How can it cost 100K a month to store trash?

Nobody, wants to buy it. If they let it stand on the ground in open air, it will cost nothing. probably scared of somebody stealing the shit nobody want to buy.

They should be happy if somebody stole it. Problem solved.

...or you could read the link.

Indeed (in September 1987), but she was almost immediately scrapped (March 1988).

 

What happens after the sale is irrelevant, it didn't have to be scrapped, that would be the new owners choice.

Ask what?

What do you want backed up?

 

Your post is confusing.

Can't really try to sell a crashed aircraft, can you?

There's nothing to stop the owner of a crashed and recovered aircraft from being sold.

The investigation into the accident, obviously, same as happens everywhere else.

 

"I stand by my statement - only in Thailand would they consider making money from such a sensitive disaster".

Your statement is wrong whether you stand by it or not, as illustrated by a specific example on this thread in the UK.
