Liz’s Revamped Travel Writing Website

For the last few months our followtheboat updates have centred around our refit. This is all very well if you're interested in boats, mechanics, engineering, painting and/or dusty Thai boatyards, but some of you are probably missing our travel stories and photos. Fear not, because Liz has just revamped her travel writing website and, right now, she's getting more hits than followtheboat!

  • Pong, head carpenter, and Un, project manager of PSS Boatyard, Satun, Thailand

Esper Refit Week 25


As usual the busiest man on the Esper refit project is Pong, the head carpenter. He's been assisted by his sons in finishing off the new teak toe rail and the teak rubbing strake down the side of the boat. Sombat, meanwhile, cracks on with the electrics.

  • Teak coffee table

Esper Refit Week 24


This week we take a close look at that saloon table that has a coffee table incorporated into it. Amazing to think that in the same week the same man is also doing the rubbing strake.
