Fantastic boat, one of the best I have been on.  The accomodations were
very comfortable, the boat was quiet and stable, and the crew was terrific.
 The whole crew pitched in at dive times to get everyone ready, handing you
your wetsuits, helping you zip up, even putting your fins on your feet when
in the dive tender.  Diving mostly off two tenders; gear up except fins,
step onto the tender from a dive deck just above sea level, and off you go.
 The diving varied from great to just okay.  Some evidence of tsunami
damage, but most sites completely fine (as was just about everything on the
island of Phuket); don't let fears of tsunami damage keep you from going.
The highlight was a dive with a school of great big mantas, who hung around
the entire dive, approaching nearly close enough to touch.
