For SixBears And Sea See, Stay The Fuck Away From Phuket!

Damn,a fucking guy can't even build a fucking boat, on his own fucking property, in some fucking place called Phuket.
The jokes just write themselves.


Phuket Immigration cracks down on yachting, marine industry


PHUKET: Phuket Immigration chief Sunchai Chokkajaykij today confirmed that his office has launched a crackdown on foreigners working illegally in Phuket’s yachting and marine industry.

The news follows the arrests of a German man and a Swiss man who were caught building their own boats on their own properties in Chalong late yesterday afternoon.

“We have been targeting foreigners working illegally for some time, and right now we are focusing on the yachting and marine industry,” Col Sunchai said.

“I cannot reveal where we will raid next, as we don’t want to give any warning to those who are breaking the law,” he added.

However, Col Sunchai gave a general warning to all foreigners involved in any form of marine transport: “We will check everywhere there are boats – the ports, the piers – everywhere,” he said.

I have no idea why it is against the law in Thailand for foreigners to build a boat on their own property but SixBears and Sea See have both built boats at home and I thought they might find some irony in this.

  1. Ah Phuket!

    I'd build a boat there too -if it was the only way to get the heck out of there.

    . . . and we think we've got it bad here.

  3. My guess is that they have less unemployment of Thai citizens than we do of U.S. citizens with such a law. I also bet they have a higher level of manufacturing there than we do here since almost all we have here are things made in China. Maybe we should enact such a law - better than any others I have seen attempting to fix the economy - no foreigners making anything here or for here. That might work.

  4. By the way Phuket (pronounced foo-ket) is supposed to be a swinging town or was about 15 years ago.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
