Radio report Telaga

Ahoy out there,
Alishan did make it all the way ( 5 miles) across from Rebak to Telaga. Our position for google earth is:
LATITUDE: 06-21.74N
LONGITUDE: 099-40.78E
We had a few days of very nasty weather, roly poly here at the anchorage and buckets-and-buckets of rain.
Since yesterday things are clearing and the solar panels are pumping again. What a different world.
The alternator of the generator decided to freeze up..resulting in a smoking V-belt....Blah what a mess. The local china man in the altenator machine shop had the problem fixed in less than 2 hours...and now the thingy sits tight and snug again with a new belt!
No dull moments for us: Last night we went for a night walk and saw a lot of lemurs ( flying monkeys). Marijke is shooting left and right... nice pictures are on the way.
Salute for now, return to

Radio report from Rebak, Langkawi

October 16th.
The Pit Stop Boat Jobs are done! Okay okay it took at least a week longer than planned...Noel from the marina shop had ordered the wrong bits and pieces...;-(
But we like this place, you don't hear us complaining too loud.
Jaap doing the odd miles on running shoes, Marijke with her camera and both enjoying the morning Pilattes exercise class. Very Social for us cruisers here.
Oh yes, Nori and Wakame of course are having a ball of a time with the monitor lizards and sea otters.
It looks like the NE monsoon is kicking the SW monsoon, the better cruising weather should be here any time now...and so Alishan will go into the cruising mode again. First exploring more Holes and Bays here in/around Langkawi. Then early November : Penang here we come ! as we do get VISITORS!!
Salute for now,
