Phuket Info

Hello all,

The Witchdoctor is planning to move from Hawaii to Phuket. Does anyone have any experience with this voyage and/or the areas around Phuket? Any info is appreciated.

Rene

Re: Phuket Info

much will depend on how long you want to take,and avoiding typhoon season.
also wether to go via philipines,or cut south and go via torres straits.

leaving hawaii in mid april and heading for kanton atoll,tuvalu,vanuatu,torres straits,singapore,phuket keeps you out of pirate and typhoon prone areas arriving phuket around august.will give good strong NE trades,then SE-E trades most of the way.

leaving hawaii in december and passing through the philipines by april should also keep you relatively free of typhoons,and good NE trades most of the way,though there has been a few cases recently of pirate activity off the bottom end of palawan,s china sea and east side of singapore straights.

Re: Phuket Info

thanks for the suggestion. I will be leaving in the first week of January. I was thinking about taking the northern route just under the Philippines. I have 75 days to complete the trip. If I come up short, I will drop the boat off in the Philippines or Singapore for a few months until I can come back.
