So, all thai boatmen and crews are warned in advance. Now we wait and see what is coming the next few days. Will Phuket marine authorities check on boats, sailing or not?
I guess not, they not leave office when the wind is strong and/or raining. Uniforms, decorations  and iPhones must kept clean and dry.
