    Hi folks,

    I took my boat up to Phuket a few days ago for the season ... & took the opportunity to haul her out for a good clean ...

    fyi, did the 600nm run in 15 hours of steaming ...

    average speed was over 40 knots all the way ...

    :)

    some pics for u ...

    Are you also going to visit Malaysia?

    People say it has one of the most beautiful surroundings.

    Are you staying at the royal Phuket yacht club?

    I was trying to work out why you were so excited photographing a guage showing that you were doing 15 knots ...

    Until I looked harder and saw it was 45 knots.

    Wow! :D

    A Pershing 80' with Arnesons. Now I understand the screen name MaxPower! ;)

    Beautiful boat! I retitled the thread to make it more relevant in searches.
