Total sailboat refit revisited: Part 3 (of 4)

Wow, this was a long one, we had so much to talk about! We didn’t have space to add in the budget, what ifs, questions, comments and hindsights after five years. But don’t worry, all that will be in Part 4…

Even after all this time, it is amazing how many of the details we both retain. It’s like it only happened yesterday. Because one of us was on the job every day, we were able to watch and manage the entire project, which is probably why it’s still so familiar. The eagle-eyed among you may recognise some familiar faces, brilliant Ton and Tui (Pong’s sons) joined us in Krabi to make the hard dodger

  1. Hello,
    Amazing refit. Your boat new would cost about 350.000-400000 euros.
    Can you give your boatyard contact?
    Thanks a lot, Paul

    1. Oh I forgot to add the link to PSS in the blog post, I’ll add it later when I’m on the laptop. In the meantime, if you go to the video on YouTube there’s a link in the description. Or Google ‘PSS shipyard, Satun, Thailand’.(Sorry, I don’t have the link to hand as I write).
