Hi all, is it posable to sail to Indonesia in one season without encountering hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons?

I would venture it depends a great deal on the boat, it's fuel capacity and the competence of the seafarer. It's about 8k miles, so divide that by the boat's speed, add 15 to 20 days of calm, if you can't carry the fuel, and you should be close.

Yes, its easy.

Leave Southern California the first day of (Northern) Spring, 1st March.

Arrive Indon before November 1st. (Hurricane season starts)

Thats 8 months. Lots of time, pretty route, places to stop off.

All down wind. all easy.

Way off topic, but ^^^Mark, I just read your little addendum at the bottom of your post, signature maybe?, and that made me smile. Being I'm hemming an hawing about my current boat that made me feel just peachy.
