Offer a gift basket? Buying off the Phuket boat drivers criminal behavior?  Unless these guys are not trained boat drivers, but just do something what cause all these accidents. Waiting for Governor and Vice governors Phuket what they are going to do about this. Answer: Nothing. The Phoenix disaster didn't teach them enough. Still hand sitting, and a bit basket stuff. Right?

Ahh- Gift Baskets., the key to sorting out all issues. Meanwhile people continue to die on the waves, under them and on the roads. Thank goodness for chicken essence.
