The sprinkler have filled my room with water

The sprinkler at released and extinguished the fire. My condo have wood floor and the floor was filled with water and I´m worried about the wood. The staff at the condo managed to clear the water and I called Maid Delivery and they will send maids on Monday to help clear out the condo.

Two of my friends went to check the condo on Sunday and they will have a look. And Maid Delivery will send Maids and they will start with 3 days. I have told them to clear the room where the fire had started.

The will also take out my curtains and bed sheets and dry clean it. My friend and the condo manager had taken care of my oriental carpets and they will clean them in the shop not far away from the condo. I don´t care much about the carpets, only 2 Persian Kiman carpets that I really don´t want to lose. Good if they can save the Pakistani carpets, but the 2 Persian are the important. But I will see if they have been successful when they are ready with the carpet

Maid Delivery have removed everything for dry cleaning and my carpets was in the carpet shop. The wood floor looks OK, but I´m more worried about water under the floor. There had been a representative from the insurance company.

Only thing remaining to do, remove the furniture


Monday 8th of July 2019 and I have a chance to go home to have a look at the condo. The service boat was on the anchorage at 7 o´clock in the morning and the car will for me when I arrive to the jetty in Map Ta Put. We left Rita a few minutes after 7 and we expect it to take about 45 minutes to reach Map Ta Put.

We stopped at a Thai tanker to pick up 4 of their crew members before we continued to the jetty in Map Ta Put. Arriving to Map Ta Put and the driver came to greet me. I asked him to stop at the mini mart up the road from the jetty. I filled up the back seat with MAX and we were soon on our way. ETA to my condo 11 o´clock and I will also have lunch with my friend.

I need to buy some stuff at HomePro and some other things to bring back on board. Too early to do some shopping in Rayong and I will have to do it in Bangkok. Empty high ways and we were hauling arse towards Bangkok.

I was home around 11 o´clock and I spent about two hours in my condo before going back to Map Ta Put. I had brought my camera equipment so I can keep an eye on the equipmetn and I hope they can start work in the condo while I am on board.

We removed the desk and shelfs and it ended up in the garbage. I was in contact with a company that AXA Insurance had recommended on the way back to Map Ta Put and they will come to have a look. Very little damage from the fire, nothing, just fresh paint, but the water! The floor looked very nice but I could hear that there was water under the wood.

So we will have to remove all the wood, about 150m2 of 25mm thick teak wood. They are working with a floor company and to put new wood is 4 weeks and to put something they call engineered wood will take 7 days. But the wood floor was the pride of my condo so I will most likely go back to wood.

I have cancelled my safari and bird watching tour to Tanzania and Ethiopia in September / October. I still hope I will be able to go, but I will have to see how it turns out inmy condo. But it will safe me 15000 US Dollar to skip my adventure in Africa.

So maybe go for the Engineered Wood and finish in 7 days and take off to Africa. The Engineered wood looks good on picture, off course it does, and it is 3mm real wood on top of some other wood board. I got an information catalog from Double Floor and you can study the catalog HERE.

Back in Rayong and I went for Japanese dinner with my driver. I had been there before and the food is good. I was back on board around 6 o´clock in the evening and I had brought my camera equipment so they can start to work in the condo any time.

I ordered whiskey and chocolate from TOPS online and I sent it to the office at my condo. The staff had really been doing a good job and without them it would have ended with a disaster.


I got a video from the condo office via line, a video from my condo when they fire had been extinguished with the sprinkler. It was not so nice to watch the video. The amount of water the sprinkler had delivered, I was really happy that the fire had started during the day time.

Imagine if it had started at 2 o´clock in the morning. BOOM! We would have filled my condo and the condo below me with water.

We started to play lotto, Loading Master, Captain and our Time Keeper and I. I sent in a few numbers on lime and we have to pay 84 Baht each per week and we are playing for 10 weeks. We won about 270 Baht first week, around 70 Baht each and I was not so very happy.

I decided that we need more luck and our Time Keeper is an expert in Thai magic. Our Loading Master is also in to Thai magic so we really have high hopes to win big this time.

Loading Master in Map Ta Put

Our Time Keeper is very worried about out lottery. He don´t know how he will get his lottery money from Sweden to Thailand. He say that it can be trouble to send 10 million from Sweden to Thailand. And he is on about it every day asking me how we can send the money to Thailand. I told him that he could travel to Sweden and bring back the money in cash.

And it didn´t become any better when I decided to buy some “good luck magic” Now he was convinced that we would win BILLIONS of Baht. And this will be a huge problem for him. Our Loading Master told him that he could use his account, no problem.

We always have a lot of Little Terns looking for fish in our wake arriving and departing from Map Ta Put. And as I have been home to get my camera equipment I tried my luck when we left Map Ta Put. Very hard to get them on picture as they are very small and quick.

Mama Boat Service had brought Mango, Bananas and MAX for me when we were anchored and when I had finished my old stock I ripped open one of the cases. I discovered that it was MAX raspberry and I was not happy.

I gave one of the cases to our Pump Man and I asked our Time Keeper to take a picture and send to “MAMA” so we´re not running in to the same unpleasantly in the future.

MAX Raspberry

Then we realised that “MAMA” would not take it seriously if it was all smiles on the picture and we took a proper picture showing how upset and angry we were. Add plenty of disappointment on that and we will for sure only get the real thing in the future.
