Ao Phangng Bay

I head off into Ao Phangnga Bay made famous by its appearance in the James Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun. The scenery is utterly spectacular, and, as it is high season there are more tourist boats than you can count. They kick up huge wakes making anchorages rolly and sight-seeing difficult during the day. But before 1000 and after 1700 I have the sights to myself. The advantage of having my own boat. Looking at the high cliffs you would expect the water to be incredibly deep but it is seldom more than 8 metres and frequently I find myself creeping along at 1.5 knots with one metre below the keel.
I have reduced the photograph quality a bit to get more in...
