The Dreamcatchers on Kokomo
25 October 2012 | Phuket, Thailand
No, that's not us in the photo: that's our good friends Julie & Mark with the stunning back-drop of Phang Na Bay in Krabi, Phuket, Thailand.
We recently spent some time aboard their boat Kokomo, starting with Henry helping them deliver her (60 foot Cooper cutter rigged sloop) the 550 miles up the Malacca Straits from Singapore to Langkawi, and ultimately Phuket. GT couldn't participate due to a prior commitment in Hong Kong..... but was able to fly up and join them all in Phuket for a 4 day leisurely cruise of Phang Na Bay (where we do the regatta each year aboard Rusalka). Eat, drink, swim, sail..... step an repeat for four days : just lovely, and great company with Mark & Julie. On the fifth day, we motored Kokomo up the lazy - shallow - river into Boat Lagoon marina and boat yard for her bottom job. We all jumped ship while she was on the hard and stayed at the Boat Lagoon hotel ($40 per night) whilst Mark and Henry orchestrated various boat jobs.....then, a flight home to Singapore, leaving Mark & Julile to pay the bills!. Henry will fly up to Langkawi at the end of October to help them bring her home.
