I wish the army would round up all those jetski bastards.

Bahahahahahahaha that is fucking awesome, I avoid the jetskis at all cost in Thailand though as anybody who is not a complete newcomer to Thailand knows the jetski renters have the integrity of a Pattaya taxi driver.

Pattaya To Control Jet Ski Operators




Pattaya administrative officers have set out to control the jet ski operators after the operators had ripped off many tourists and have been doing so for many years. Plus they aimed to set up a sub-committee in order to control the operators.


PATTAYA Recently- Mr.Sakchai Tang-Ho-chief district of Bang Lamung- said in a Pattaya business and tourism association conference which was held at the Grand Sole Hotel Pattaya that jet ski operators had exploited the customers by collecting a large amount of money for the so called repairs. Also they had been doing this for many years which had actually affected tourism in Pattaya.


Recently the tourism-sport bureau of Chonburi had ordered the marine department to solve this problem by making all operators to register with the marine department. Also the operators need to have insurance for each boat in order to cover any damage caused by tourists.


However jet skis are not covered with insurance because Thai law doesnt allow this type of water craft. As a result of this, the operators werent able to insure their boats.


Mr.Sakchai said that officials need to discuss with the operators again and the officers needed to find a special zone for jet ski operators. Also they aimed to set up a sub-committee so that they can find a way to sort out this ever growing problem and those operators who operate illegally.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
