Re: Need engineering ideas - launch for a boat

Prcscct - Yes, one of those. With firm sand it should be easy to get in the water....migrant didn't say if he just wanted to fish or run around a bit but I can't see where it wouldn't work. The tractor idea is probably the best, but depends on how big he want the boat to be, and then you still have ...

Re: Has Hua Hin Traffic Reached Saturation Point?

I remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote a reply mentioning watching traffic from the old Byouk Tower in BKK while we ate dinner 28 years ago. The traffic never moved the whole time we were eating. We are now in Cha Am and partake of the drive into Hua Hin only when absolutely necessary, and we take...

Re: Ryder Cup 2016 TV Coverage

To answer the original question, Truevisions is NOT showing any Ryder Cup except the two hours a day from Golf Channel. I spent hours and hours looking for something somewhere on the internet and the results were negative. I even went to the "Watch live streaming" etc. sites and tried to sign up.......

Re: Parking Downtown Hua Hin

I've always been of the opinion the now empty "shopping mall" at the traffic light would be the ideal spot for a multi-level parking lot. Seems like whomever owns that property might be wise to raze those empty buildings in favor of one. Better late than never, and would produce a lot more income th...

Crime wave overwhelming Hua Hin? That's a bit of a reach, isn't it?

Re: The scourge of Facebook

My wife, friends and family use Line every day (sometimes it seems like All day). The free phone call service is great. The other night I spoke with someone in California for over an hour for no charge, and last month two of my old employees called me on the video call service to have a long visit. ...

Vinyl Window fly screens

We live right on the beach and have big problems with corrosion on our brown aluminum screens. The last set we bought about two months ago and they are already corroding on the bottom of the screens where they come together (8 foot double screen). Does anyone know of a window and screen company in t...

Re: Americans in HH?

Used to do some RC car racing in Ca. but it was getting very expensive and golf won out.....pretty much all I'm interested in now.

I could fix you up with golf clubs if you ever want to give it a shot.....but nice in any case to meet a fellow American.

Give me a shout when you get here.
