Re: Tourists warned of jellyfish on Trang, Krabi beaches

wow Pete,
based on those concentrations of jelly fish per square metre a swimmer would have no chance but to be stung you would think.
Always amazes me as to why we never hear of local fishermen being seriously stung/killed by these critters when you see so many of them in the water with their nets.

Re: Charting the skies

JJB I regularly get lectured by a water engineering mate about any of these systems including the domestic ones. He says filtration systems can filter off the baddies and the accumulated nasty stuff can, for a whole bunch of reasons be suddenly released all in one hit delivering a pretty toxic brew ...

Re: Blue marron

Honestly I cannot see what all the fuss is about with marron, or yabbies for that matter. Give me a good old Mandurah blue swimmer crab plus a decent cold beer and I would be more than happy any day.

Re: Leaky windows

If you examine the moving sections of the doors and windows you should see channels with "fur seals" fitted in them (kinda fluffy grey stuff). Look at the faces that rub against the frame tracks and each other.I found the night critters were coming in thru the unsealed sections of our windows. Bough...

Window louvre frames

Hi all,
Got any suggestions where one may find decent quality anodized aluminum weather sealed winder or lever window louvre frames?
For safety reasons need to carry 6mm glass blades.
Also I need the blades to have nice ground edges too.

Re: Poop Lorries - where does it go?

We were pulled up on the side of a canal in a quiet soi in Petchburi for a lunch break couple years ago and I strolled over to watch a blue tanker with hose out down the embankment. The driver looked pretty uncomfortable with us around and said he was taking on water . But it was pretty obvious by t...

Re: Thai Partner wanting to buy property in thailand

quote caller "Only Thais can buy land legally, so it won't be in your name. I assume the Oz authorities and banking system, via credit rating checks etc, will be aware of any large sum or regular payments you transfer to Thailand and will ask why? " These funds will have to be transferred out of Oz ...

Re: Thailand closes Gulf 3 months to allow marine animals to breed

Sorry to differ Steve, as I read it it states a ban on fishing in the Gulf. But yes it does refer to mackerel and the ban on specific gear to catch that species.The press release does confer an all out effort to allow ALL species in the Gulf to recover by a ban. Banning certain gear is not going to ...

Re: Thailand closes Gulf 3 months to allow marine animals to breed

All great for the enviroment but what plans have the powers that be set up for the hundreds of thousands who earn a living from fishing and their lost incomes? Expect the crime rate to increase around the coastal towns. And what are they going to offer in replacement to this food in the diet of the ...
