    Hi Colin, nice to hear that you like my blog.
    If you move to Phuket you may want to take your kayak with you from Scotland. Most kayaks for sale in Phuket is sit-on-top kayaks for recreational use. A good kayak is hard to find here, usually it have to be ordered from Pattaya/Bangkok or be imported.
    I am going to post on this blog once or twice a month, with photo's from trips in the Phuket area. It may give you some ideas for future kayak tours.
