having boat in Thailand

Recommended Posts

Rubber rafts, kayaks, stand-up surfboards, all these little one person water crafts are what i need for the many bays,sloughs and estuary's the inland waters of the east gulf coast offer. And a GPS too.

Maintenance of boats are expensive. Boat owners are happy only twice... once when they buy and when they sell smile.png The bigger the boat , the deeper the well. Good luck

Isn't a boat a hole in the water into which you throw money ? annoyed.gif.pagespeed.ce.EWbqpZ7s0b.gif

I guess cost of ownership/maintenance varies a lot with the type/size of the boat and on where you keep it.

I don't really find my boat expensive to maintain, but its not costly on the outset.

Production, including paintjob 90 000

transport to Chao Praya 2 000

purchase of engine 27 000

purchase of gear box 5 000

purchase of flywheel housing 3 000

production of longtail/prop etc 3 000

tank, aluminium 4 000

production of the engine swivel 4 000

engine frame 3 000

putting the mechanics together 15 000

the above figures (except the first 3) are approx.

the boat is currently undergoing a series of fixes,

changing the bottom, changing some wood in the sides to mai takian (hard and lightweight)

changing the whole spoiler thing

changing the transom from thin softwood to thick hardwood

raising the transom

longitudinal hardwood "fender lists" on the hull side (2 on each side)

and a few other bits and pieces

and a complete paintjob

35 000

can live with that, and its GREAT fun,

not least because I think I have the absolute fastest boat between Ayudaya and the sea

sorry, are those numbers BAHTs or DOLLARs?
