    Wow Max, Amazing photos of your travels! The scenery in that area is just worth seeing all the time. Glad you saw "Twizzle" and "Adastra"!

    Are you keeping the Pershing at the Phuket location? Or is it going to the med for the summer?

    Going back soon to phuket?

    Really enjoyed the photos and hope to see more. I spent quite a bit of time crewing on a friend's sport fishing boat in Phuket some years ago. Have you been over to the Similans yet?

    Those whales aren't pilots btw - I think they are false killer whales. It's pretty unusual to see them in the shallow waters of Phang Nga bay - the times I've seen them have all been out at the dropoff, 25 miles or so offshore.

    "Meridian..." looks to be the ex. "Imagine..." by Trinity Yachts but who is the first yacht "Latitude" by? Timmerman?

    according to what I have found, Latitude is indeed a Timmerman with Vripack design.

    MaxPower --

    Hi. On a decent budget, if I was to go to Southern Thailand for 2-3 weeks to just blob on the beach, read, explore, get fat on seafood & decompress, where would you suggest?

    TIA
