Chinese tourists already so scarce,  with this type of news, adding pain to aggravation,  sure a lot more will not come and all TAT (39 millions) estimates will be down the pipe

Curious?... Are these boat hire companies required to have any liability insurance in place to cover the damages?... Or is a public announcement that the owner will pay all medical bill all that is needed?... :coffee1:

This follows the Phoenix tragedy in Phuket when more than three dozen lost their lives in an incident that had a big effect on Chinese tourism to Thailand.

47 official Chinese deaths in the Phoenix tragedy in Phuket, not about 3 dozen.. Too many major car accidents where someone has been rear ended, but two boats kilometres from land? It doesn't matter what a Thai drives. Cars, mb, minibus, buses or boats, these avoidable accidents happen too often.. TIT..

3-4 N. Miles.

 

Isn't that the distance from the mainland?

Those Chinese people and boats again.

 

.... the only thing to do is to protect the Tourist industry and ban Chinese tourists from using boats.... :whistling:

It might be more beneficial to ban Thais from using boats, save all tourists at sea.

It happened 3-4 miles out from the island. How the <deleted> do boats run into each other out in the middle of nowhere?

They are lonely.  Cruising for a bruise. Falling asleep at the helm, just like truck drivers. Must be genetic, like those "fainting goats".

These speedboats often "trim" the prop to lift the bow high up in the air, for a "thrill" for the passengers - but of course, like that the driver (I refuse to use the word captain since that implies some degree of competence) has no hope of seeing what's directly in front of him...

The slow boat across is definitely a safer way to go...

Well, it is either..........Brake failure, or, slippery water...........Take your pick.

I think there was some oil on the water
