A pirate-themed café boat and dining establishment that partly immersed last month has actually been restored and positioned into drydock.
The double-deck Kra Kenian raft boat offering dining, live music, a karaoke space and squid fishing started handling water Jan. 30 after being struck by waves driven by strong winds.
Pattaya Marine Department Director Eakaraj Kantaro stated Feb. 7 stated the ship, formally called the Thailand Explorer, was drained and refloated, then gave a shipyard for maintenance. The procedure took 3 days.
Eakaraj stated no fuel or trash was spilled by the vessel.
