Alexander Travkin, 31, from Russia and his partner Julia Mironova, 29, from the Ukraine filed a report with the Krabi Marine Police at noon on July 7 where it was stated that their 12 metre yacht Adventure had sunk at Ao Nang after mooring it late the previous night due to high winds and waves.

The couple returned the next morning to find the yacht had sunk, the mast was still visible and all our belongings were floating in the water. (See story here.)

Krabi Marine Chief Boonchaw Tangsiripaisan told The Phuket News today (July 21), “Officials from the navy, Krabi province and Khao Phanom Bencha National Park have made several unsuccessful attempts to salvage Adventure which sunk on July 6, the latest being today.

“The reason why we have been unsuccessful is due to the bad weather conditions,” he said.

“The owner of yacht has already paid for the salvage operation so we must make sure we do our job. However, for us to salvage the yacht we also have to rely on cooperation from officials from Krabi City and other offices who provide machinery and equipment.

“As we have been unsuccessful today we will try again tomorrow (July 22),” he added.

Just cut the wreckage in 2 or 3 pieces, lift and dump it for destruction.
What is so difficult about it? It is just a small yacht. Not a oil tanker.
Was/is there any thai salvage professional among all the thai officials on the photo?
So funny.
