Chalong Bay's boaters can't agree on how to improve the marina.
Some want a protected artificial cove for rich playboys' "super yachts"; others say that it would force small "longtail" boaters to make a small detour.
Some people say the harbor's coral and fish life must be protected, while others say that the harbor is already so polluted that it doesn't contain any living corals or fishes.
Pity the marine engineers who try to appease all sides.
This political cartoon, which appeared in a Phuket newspaper, is a sort of Rube Goldberg solution to the problem.
