The major objectives of the Blue Book are to provide a compilation of the major operating characteristics of the wooden-hulled coastal vessels of Thailand and to provide a basis for recognition and identification. The book defines the nature of normal maritime activity in Thai waters and will therefore assist officials in detecting possibly hostile coastal vessels operating outside the normal pattern. The Blue Book of Coastal Vessels -- Thailand will be useful for the education and training of patrol personnel. It should be viewed as a background and reference book as well as a recognition and identification manual. Thai and U.S. personnel assigned to new duties in Thai waters will find the book useful in introducing them quickly to the types of wooden-hulled vessels they will encounter. It is in the training and education areas that this book may make its greatest contribution.
