This is an beautiful Indonesian wooden boat with an awesome crew! While we
were on board, there were 17 crew/8 guests.  We booked this boat back in
March 2010, initially through Dive Damai, and then had Reef and Rainforest
(the best agency for dive travel!) take over the booking and manage the
details for us.
There were a few disappointments...when we booked the boat, it had 4
"equal" size staterooms, which changed since the initial booking,
so 2 couples were in smaller rooms (although still generously sized).  Now,

Sounds like fun.  I just checked out the Reef/Rainforest site.  Wow!
Planning my next trip!

I would rather have an 18hr water crossing from Bali on the Damai than
having to brave a Merpati flight from Bali to Bima.  On our last trip, 3 of
the guests had their luggage left in Bali requiring a day's diving wasted
waiting for it.  The Damai is a top notch operation.

I think I would too!  Always better on a boat than on a plane.
Hi David I met you on the Bilikiki once...
