Some time ago I was listening to a conversation. A group of westerners were talking about how good it would be to buy and live on a boat.
I have a few questions? Can a westerner buy a fishing boat? Would there be any restrictions? Could you work the boat?

How much would it cost?

Could you freely sail Cambodian waters?

I wish I knew, Andy. Apparently, no one else does either.

I don't see why not Andy, but to work it? Different story I would think.

Thank you all for the replies. I asked the question because I did not know. Richard, it is always helpful when you know of people who have done this before. Not having work restrictions in a country is helpful. I suppose you would be able to set sail to the few Thai islands too. That is if you have the paperwork in order for the Thai authorities. Just the same as taking a car over the border.

When I get there, I will be very serious about building and operating boats there.  I'll let ya'all know what I find out.

I will be looking for a small boat when the house is complete. To be honest the Laos boats on the river are a better build. But here is the problem again! Nether me or the wife speak Laos!!!

Just curious! - Laos is landlocked, so presumably any boat you buy in Laos would have to come down the river.

 

You showed photos of rapids and falls. Are they between you and Laos? or between you and the sea?

 

How do you get a boat past them to go to Thailand?

 

Is there a navigable route from Laos to the sea?

No! The rapids are below me on the river heading on it's way down Cambodia. Opposite me on the other bank is Laos. Up river is Thailand. So in all I am in a good position.
