So who is going to pay for the recovery operation(s)? I suspect the insurers (if there are any) would have a legal claim to the scrap value of the hulk.

It has been recovered already, there was no hull insurance.

Fixable .! Are they having a laugh .. Look at the state of it .. And if it were " fixed " up who would really want to go aboard that again knowing its history .. 

I believe they mean that these things were fixable before the disaster happened. Now its only scrap and the money they get from the auction should go to the relatives of the deceased whatever the amount might be but here I don't think it will somehow.

The Thai Immigration Bureau Chief, Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn, has already confirmed that many aspects of the ‘Phoenix’ design and operation were substandard.

Dec. 18, 2018:

  • Although it has already been confirmed that other boats also built in Phuket have the same design as the Phoenix, [Acting Chief of the Phuket Marine Office] Mr Wiwat yesterday assured that no boats with illegal ‘substandard’ designs were still operating among the Phuket tour boat fleet.
  • Mr Wiwat’s reaction followed Immigration Bureau chief Pol Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn on Monday (Dec 17) publicly revealing that the Phoenix was substandard and illegally approved, and that officials and others connected with the July 5 tragedy will lose their jobs.

Time for firings and disposal of the other Phoenix designed vessels?

NAAC should be immediately involved for an investigation of possible government abuse of power, bribes and all Phoenix design vessels held as evidence!

Everything is doable and fixable but at what costs?! And is it worth doing it. It is not it has an historical value like an old special car, plane, building or whatever.

 

Scrap it and build a proper new one like it should been build the first time.

Wanna bet it doesn't end up back in service in Thailand somewhere down the road...  Knowing this place, nothing would surprise me anymore....   :ph34r:

The hull seems fairly sound to me.

With a good power clean inside and out, some repairs to the roofline and railings, it could form the basis of a new tourist boat, bought at a cheap price.

It would obviously need a complete new fit out, including an appropriate  marine engine, and modifications to comply with safety standards, but it could (and probably will) be resurrected and plying local waters within a year.  Hopefully with a crew competent enough to avoid sinking it in a squall!
