On Sunday, strong wind and waves caused a boat to capsize about three nautical miles off Trang province near the end of a fishing tour. Fortunately, all six people on board were rescued safely.

The six all had life vests on and a nearby trawler rushed to pick them up.

“There was strong wind and big waves. They were over two meters high,” the tour boat owner Thanapong Kaewsongsaeng said yesterday.

The Saen Larn 3 boat is about three-meters wide and 15m long. Damage to the boat was estimated at about 300,000 baht.
