Pattaya-based boats must remain on shore Nov. 19-20 to accommodate the navy’s international fleet show, the Marine Department said.

Pattaya spokesman Pinit Maneerat said Nov. 7 the department banned operation of ferries, speedboats and other vessels during the high point of the Nov. 13-22 maritime review.

That means no visits to Koh Larn, no scuba diving or marine sports for tourists while the navy gets chummy with military counterparts from Southeast Asia. Navy vessels from participating countries will dock in Pattaya Bay to a distance of 3.5 kilometers off shore.

Boats moored at Bali Hai Pier are to remain while the same goes to boats at Koh Larn. Those caught violating will face prison time up to three months, fines up to 5,000 baht or both.

    OI!! Now is the time for the Koh Larn ferry Companies to sail their shaky, listing, sinking, stinking fleet; to the nearest Dry dock for a Fleet overhaul. The Ferry Crews can be employed to assist the Dry Dock workers; instead of slinking off to their home villages; to get wasted on Leo Beer & Lao Kow. It cud be a Win Win situation.
