Boats in Ranong N. Thailand
« on: October 06, 2010, 12:35:52 pm »

On a recent trip to Thailand I needed to do a border run for a new visa, from Ranong N. Thailand to Myanmar (Burma).

Ranong is a fishing port and there are some interesting looking boats, and so I thought I would share.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Last batch

Pic 66. Top heavy or what?

Last two pics are of the boat that took 30 of us across the delta. Every time she maneuvered she healed over unnervingly.

It is a 20 minute boat ride across fairly open sea. I would hate to do the journey in choppy waters after a monsoon.
