That sucks.

Almost as risky as trying to operate a Jet ski business in Phuket!

There are three operators going to Koh Rong Sanloem. Interestingly, in the last month two of them have had their boats grounded.

Lets just wait and see. Many rumours at the moment. It turned out that the Monkey Republic fire last year WASN"T started by
either the Turkish or the Russian mafia remember. It's low season and many people have nothing better to do down here but ruminate, speculate and spread bullshit. Boats do have a tendency to catch fire unexpectedly.

HUH:

were engulfed in flames on Sunday night in a fire police suspect was caused by arson.
The two guards on duty at the time of the fire told police that no one had come or gone from the port, and insisted that the flames were caused by an electrical fire started by a malfunctioning battery on the tourist boat. Police are continuing to investigate and suspect arson.
right , the two guards that were sleeping at the time. ;)

$20,000 reward;
Now there is uncertainty about the cause of the fire. While the police posed by a gas explosion, suspect the witnesses and the boat owner that arson is involved. The two team members have apparently heard no gas explosion and in the bar area of ​​the ship is also no gas bottle is to have found.

The owners seem certain that it is arson, someone was seen running away when the fire started.
