The article just says *****. I didn't know it was ***** **********'s boatyard? Surprise, surprise. Your enemys have access to the press now? Too bad.
We'll farangs fighting farangs is nothing new in Pattaya. See it all at: http://www.pattayapeople.com/
Hopefully owners of the multihulls being built at the boatyard don't get mixed up with local politics. But, it is just another business surprise that a custom boat owner has to watch out for, if possible.
EU, UK, USA, Aus, NZ clients should know how their boatbuilder is treating his neighbors. Information that shows up in the local newspaper is never seen by those buying the exported products.
In many countrys boat factorys are in industrial parks not the suburbs. Who got their first the housing development or the boatyard? Good luck sueing the newspaper!
If the threat to the residents is bad enough, I don't know, I'm not an expert, then maybe someone in the EU will start a boycott campaign like the campaign aganist seal skin products from NewFoundland, CA.
It is all just so very, very depressing. Kind of takes the pizazz out of boat ownership.
