I have six months left on my passport and am about to apply for my non immigrant B Visa with all that multiple entry jazz on it...the problem is that at the time of arrival I will have less than 6 months on my passport
The Thai consulate in Hull says on its website that they require at least 6 months on your passport...but I have heard that this is not absolutely neccesary
Obviously I can get my passport renewed in Thailand...and I also hear that you can pay to have your visa transferred from one passport to another
so am I likely to encounter any problem with this, thanks

Call the consulate would be my advice mate - they're really helpful at Hull and will tell you what's what IME. They always say you should have 6 months on your passport, I've no idea whether it's enforced.
Having said that, I'd get a new passport and then get your visa - then you won't have to worry about changing your visa to a new one while you are in Thailand. Also, replacement passports are much cheaper in the UK than in Thailand
Failing that get hold of KK - although he's missing in action it seems
You can apparently do a "same-day service" passport renewal in the UK - but I don't know anything about it
