Patrol Boat 813

On the 26th December 2004 around 9.30am Patrol Boat 813 was anchored approx 1 nautical mile off shore. This is the time the Tsunami hit.

The boat ended up over 2 km inland in the village of Bang Niang. It’s now a memorial to those many thousands of tourists and locals who lost their lives.

The boat suffered very little damage
