The official itinerary for the ceremonies is from midday to 5pm, starting with a merit making ceremony, Wiwat Chitchertwong, the Acting Chief of the Phuket Marine Office, told The Phuket News today (Mar 21).

The Pakarang (Thai for "coral"), emblazoned with the hull registration number “805”, measures some 80 feet (about 24 metres), Mr Wiwat explained.

“It will be used for marine expeditions and inspections for research purposes,” he said.
