Any service you might need is available on the
island. The skill level and care taken by local contractors is always
a pleasant surprise to visiting sailors, who often expect, frankly,
something more rudimentary. Language difficulties can be a problem,
but that can be overcome with calm and patience. And Thai workers
are quite used to foreign boatowners looking over their shoulder.
If communication fails, and something is not done to spec, Thai contractors
will generally redo the work without complaint.
Note: The listings below are not intended as reviews,
but the companies and tradesmen are well established with many satisfied
customers. Reports of consistently inferior work or malfeasance will
result in de-listing.
