I will be there on Sunday arvo, 6th Dec, and there is a lady at the marina who does it every year and can organise permits etc, I will let you know how it all works! I also have been surfing Indo for 8 years, spent around 14 months there in total, but I am buying
31' cruiser, all set up in Langkawi, with a view to sail around the Nth end of Sumatra and down the islands. This new import
duty complicates things, maybe too much trouble for Indo?
What sort of boat do you plan to use?
