PATTAYA: -- Two speedboats came to the rescue some two kilometers off the North Pattaya coast when a boat carrying 23 Indian tourists sank yesterday.

 

All aboard were saved as the boat developed a leak and quickly sank. Most of the Indian tourists had cuts and bruises sustained in the sinking and many were in shock, reports Thai News Agency.

 

The tourists were ferried to the area near the Dusit Hotel by two speedboats that took part in the rescue near the island of Koh Jun.

 

Authorities in Pattaya swiftly forbid small boats and speedboats from ferrying passengers to Koh Larn as high winds and heavy seas hit the area.

So wouldI be assuming too much to say the boat that sank with 23 passengers and a driver was 'a small boat'?

Apparently, the boat hit a wave, which caused the hull to leak which sunk the boat.

But at least, the front didn't fall off - 'chance in a million' :whistling:

A gallon of petrol and a box of matches is the best remedy for those rotting heaps of plywood
