 Brain failure plus not lose face by giving way. Plus far to fast in channel. Must be some sort of speed limit set by marina.

It used to be 5 knots per hour 10 or so years ago....don't know what it is now....90% of them should never be allowed in the sea never mind in charge of a boat

Can't  drive on  land cant drive  on the water, want to fly  with them?

Hardly any tourists and they still manage to hit each other. What a farce. 

Probably because swerving first would be a loss of face.

I ever the silly little general needed an excuse to publicly fire a minister, he has so many to choose from!

TAT, Health, Tourism, whoever is supposed to be responsible for marine safety!

What a bunch of absolute <deleted>.

I rode on a speedboat one time. Back when I was young and foolish.


All the way up the Mae Khong river in Cambo to PP.  Rode on top.  OMG.  Instant decapitation if rollover at high speed.


Never again. 


Not in that much of a hurry (to die). 😯

Of course not, They're Thais, and it will take  a couple of generations until  they'll change.

It has been like this since they introduced motorized vehicles and 'smart phones' in Thailand. Get used to it will take 2 or 3 generations until they learn this.

It’s a real shame,Thailand has so much to offer tourists from let’s say European countries. All they need to do is enforce the laws they already have in place. Make examples out of the law breakers,invest a bit of that tourism money into cleaning up the place. Get rid of the known scams,hang on I am starting to dream a bit here.
