Hi Tom

I was so free to have a look at your boat last February. I was anchoring with my Tiki "WaveDancer" just beside. "White seal" looks still very good and I'm sure after a refit from Gunther whe'll be perfect.  All the best from WaveDancer

Hi Wavedancer,

thank's, it's always a bit strange to be sitting in Europe and hoping the boat is fine :-)

But we've got somebody looking after her and I'm sure he's doing a good job. I think I've seen "WaveDancer" when we anchored at Ao Chalong - very nice boat!

Cheers,

Tom

Can you recommend Seascape Ltd. in Phuket (Thailand)?
