Ahem, strike "excel" . . .. Should read: that item might cause your system to crash.

To just be a useful post on the thread:

How old are you going to be then and what is your budget for cutting the dock lines?

If you're not selling the dock lines when you sail into the sunset, regrouping may come early. Perhaps a figure of speech??

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.
