Location: Koh Phai, Thailand
We raised anchor before breakfast, leaving Koh Sak and motoring about five miles west to Koh Phai. The island is the property of the Thai Navy, so we tried to check in with the island outpost, but received no response. Shortly after anchoring our divers were in the water, later resurfacing to the sounds of monkeys in Koh Phai's bamboo forest. After lunch, the shipmates prepared Argo to set sail to Koh Chang the next day. There are numerous sheets and halyards on Argo and everyone has started to commit them all to memory. Following dinner and a chat on life underway, we watched a movie about our hero Irving Johnson's sail around Cape Horn.
