> Well here I am in Thailand on my brother William's boat Rowan Spray. These seem to be the local fishing boats with engines mounted on a counterbalance propshaft which enables them to go into vary shallow water as the propellers lift themselves on a skeg on the bottom.
> I have decided to have another go using my Ipad to post on here. Perhaps someone with a PC can let me know which way up the pictures appear on the blog.
> We anchored last night and went ashore to allow William's dog to stretch his legs. He spent some time digging up crabs but they are only very little. William's boat is a home built 38 ft steel version of Joshua Slocum's Spray designed by Bruce Roberts. Slocum was the first chap to complete a single handed circumnavigation in the 1890s.
> Now on our way south to get around the bottom of Phuket Island.
If this post doesn't make sense it is because I have had to delete two photos as it bounced back saying it was too big.
