Police received reports of a boat incident at the “Por Duang Thaweeporn 1” pier in Tab Lamu at about 11am, said Capt Jaran Srirak of the Thai Muang Police.

Officers arrived at the scene to see the two boats on fire. Firefighters successfully put out the flames.

Earlier, the tour speedboat Da Marine had left the Tab Lamu Pier with tourists for the Similan islands but made a U-turn due to an engine problem.

Tourists were safely moved to another boat.

The defective boat was then brought the Por Duang Thaweeporn 1 pier for inspection.

The fire later spread to another tour speedboat, the Da Marine 1, docked next to it.

Time after time we read about these plywood boats with low flash point gasoline engines instead of diesel 
It are all sailing fire bombs
Astonishing we never hear any thai authority about this matter
Guess there are no paper forms to 'order' anything concerning this dangerous tourist life threatening matter.
When Thai Government gives thai tourist speedboats needed safety attention ?
