LOL We were in Danga Bay Marina, Malaysia for 2 months and then Langkawi and Phuket and theiur ain't a breath of wind from the south side of the Singapore Straits to the west side of the Anderman islands.

The heat is unique and the humidity is trying to get into the Guiness Book of Records.

The marina filled up as the word was passed arround theres a deal on airconditions in town;
So all the cruisers gathered for the fray
All the tired and hot cruisers from bays near and far
had tied their bowlines sweating to the bar
For a yachty loves a bargain, and revs his dinghy with delight.

There was Eddy and Wendy, of Absoltly Knot from Cruisers Forum and few could storm a store when their wallets opened up.

Then Mark and Nicolle showed up - no better cruisers in the land. But they scoffed the airconditioner and bought a bloody big fan!

Good one Mark...

Ooitn - You spend time acclimatizing, your skin toughens up against the mozzies - you buy a couple of 12v fans...

And then you sweat your miserable a$$ off...
