Bad, bad blogger!
Sunny with passing Thunder Storms
01/31/2015, Klang Harbour

I've been really bad about updating the blog and I apologize to the 2 or 3 people other than family that check our progress. So, in just a few words, I can pretty much summarize what we been doing.

Since we left Puteri Marina after visiting Singapore, we have been playing the tidal current game. This game is very simple...guess which direction the current will go in the Strait of Malacca depending on what the tides are and which source of tidal information is least incorrect. Basically we wake at the crack of dawn and catch the out flowing tide. If we are right about which direction it will flow, we can see speeds of 7 -8 knots for about 6 hours. As soon as the current changes direction, it is imperative to find a good anchorage along a shoreline that doesn't offer much protection for a large fetch and monster wakes from passing ships.

Today we motor sailed up the Channel past Port Klang. As can be seen in the photo, the port is massive!

We are in Singapore and the prices are best reflected by the cost of a 750mL bottle of Absolut Vodka which I could buy at Albertsons in California for less than $9.95.

In Singapore, the cost is $111.40SGD = $89USD

Americans have it good!

Thought I'd upload a new GoPro video taken from the KL Tower while we were in Kuala Lumpur.
