Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Jerry, glad you've made your choice. Missed you at the annual summit SN meeting on Koh Jum. Actually it was a short quarum of one .Naren ,our Mongolian songstress got tired of waiting for a ship to come in . Left for China. Snooze, yu loose. Our favourite part of the world is quickly filling up with expat types from all over who realize they can retire there on a really small income. Some even have boats. I can attest to the high quality and affordability of the new Krabi hospital as I spent a week there in ICU after we last met . Don, all that experience is not a valuable commodity. The hotties are just as keen to make their own mistakes as they always were.Still, we can stand on our wallets and hope.

So which country will take the best care of an old broken down US $4k/mo cruiser? After all there is going to come a time that with my experience it is going to be in major demand from the hotties.


BTW - Mark J will never know this lesson.

Without a doubt it will be Thailand. Between Singapore for batteries and a few other things, Malaysia for the teak, good place to haul out, and good labor, Thailand is but a few days sail away from these places. Nice water for diving, great food cheap, very pretty girls, and very reasonable medical. Very pretty place, many things to do if you open yourself a bit, and a lot of history. Just stay away from hanging out full time at some of the yacht clubs. This can be expensive and will suck the life from you. Thailand has some great cruising and diving spots. You won't get bored. The PI, Sumatra, Borneo are right around the corner. No doubts in my mind, this is the place. Also there are some things that don't belong on a spread sheet. Don't get me wrong though, if you have 4k burning a hole in your pocket you can spend it. However if you live right, you can live very very well and stay within your budget. And best of all, the SN east coasters will be jealous.

WTF guys, I thought I was causing thread drift with a few pictures. If not careful the mods will regulate this thread to the dark reaches of the politics war religion and guns. It will not see daylight there.

Heh. Lake Michigan's got parts where you can see 90 feet down now. But it's quagga mussels, not legislation, that's doing it.

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Mr f, the only thing I have is transcripts and taped interviews with senators and delegates during the hearings, but you are obviously right about the entire issue because you've read the entire bill, including the fine print, and the bay is becoming pristine as I type this.

Keep paying those taxes and wake me up when you can see the bottom of the bay 20 feet beneath the surface,

I mean exactly what I said. When you start your rant with a falsehood, you undermine your credibility so that the whole story is called into question. Whether you confused your states or forgot that we're in the 21st century is for you to figure out. I was just pointing out that your statement was not supported by the facts, even though you thought it had an element of "truthiness."

Either way, at least one of them seems to grossly disagree with Mr. Eisenhower's design team, as to what the speed limit on that road can safely be.

If confusing those two states is the greatest mistake I've ever made, by all means, set Woodward & Bernstein on to fact-checking everything I misrecall!
