Hi, we were there about 15 month ago, near a full moon, our draft is 2 Metres and yes we hit bottom a few times, frankly I would not go there again, its a cess pit in the water as not very tidal, boat was in the marina for rigging repairs. Boat was left with a large amount of "putrid" gunk at the water line and below
Close to town but over priced,
I am frankly negative about the Yacht Lagoon but you can get most bits there quickly.
The channel has piles on one side and its only about 8 Metres wide. I was told to keep away from the pile as some had been hit and broken below water line and a new pile place near it. As it was we encountered a large motor yacht coming in and he pushed us close to the piles. I'm not sure how you would go at 3 metres probably better to go to yacht haven as many trades work out of there unless you are hauling out.
Haul out options now are Satun down south, Lankawi Reback or in Lankawi it self. Also Penang.
Reback has some specials on. However you could make a deal with Miss O at Satun however be aware limited english speaking tradesmans and limited people around who could help you. MIs O has had a baby and is not in the yard as often as she was.
If you have a timber boat needing plank repairs this is the only place to go.
I was a yacht with a large amount of worm in the planks be stripped and replanked in a week, It was a wonderful to see such good tradesman working in large planks with precision, cabinet work well frankly no unless you do it your self and use a guy to cut to shape etc. Bring your own SS Screws etc from Langkawi and any other yacht bits you need.
All the Best
