Hello from Phuket/Thailand! My first RIB!

Hi there!

I'm currently an expat in Thailand, and since boat rentals are somewhat non-existent here (or extremely expensive if you can manage to find one), I finally bought my very first RIB (and my very first boat at the same occasion!) to enjoy the amazing islands around.

Despite I successfully passed my boat exam few years ago, I'm a total n00b! I'll try to find some usefull informations here.

Anyone in Phuket?

Ah ah, thanks! I'm so scared! I'll first have to struggle w/ and understand tides first : during the low tide, it seems there's not enough water to come back to the hardstanding pier... Meanwhile, I'll have to remember my knots...

Will keep you posted asap, my first sail on saturday!

Hi and welcome aboard, I have some good friends living North of you, Pete and Lung from Chiang Mai, Pete always raves about how nice the South coast is.

Good pictures, nice boat and crew ))
The east coast of Phuket is wonderful for smaller RIBs.
