We arrived in Royal Phuket Marina (RPM) yesterday and lifted straight out to get the line cutter sorted. Turns out we need a new cutlass bearing too. It took all day to get the shaft out and then cut the old bearing out - poor guys doing it in 30 degree heat and high humidity. Anyway its out now and just have to hope they can get a new one. Also finally "trashed" the trash compactor and are taking advantage of the excellent carpentery and of course teak, to have a storage locker built in the galley in its place.
Tomorrow is Colette's day for dealing with the seat cover and cushion cover guy called Oddy! We shall see how it goes!!
We now have all the info for our Indian Visas so curried turkey on Xmas Day is looking a real possibility.
