Since everyone likes photos, here is one I took during the survey of Oia on the hard stand at the Rantanachai boatyard in Phuket, while she was out of the water for a survey I had done.
Obviously in the photo she’s still named Kestrel II. In fact, that is still the case until I get her re-registered and repainted. There are all sorts of superstitions about renaming your boat, but I’m not superstitious so I’m not going to worry about them.
Frankly I haven’t taken too many photos of the boat yet, because every time I’ve seen it I’ve been too busy poking and prodding. But I’ll be sure to rectify that soon.
