    Yes, the Phi-Phi islands, pronounced Pee-Pee, are between Phuket and the Andaman Sea. They also filmed The Beach there, so is now full of gap year backpackers trying to be Leonardo Dicraprio. :)

    While we were there in the late 80's, on the 65m HDW 'Katalina', the Skipper bought one of those wooden longboats with a Yanmar longtail motor (it was a very good night out :cool: ). We cruised around the islands and hardly saw another soul there. Beautiful.

    Afterwards, we picked the boat up with the crane and put it on the Heli-deck. We used it back in the Med to thump around Monaco while dressed as Thai fishermen/women until the Port Captain told us to p*ss off for making too much noise. It now lives in Antigua.

    Hi folks,

    I'm uploading some pics taken in the seas around Phuket last year when I took my Ferretti 630 up ...

    Hope you like them ...

    Mods: Could you update the thread to "Updated with pics"? Thanks.

    Please bear with me since I can upload only in batches of 5 ...

    :)
