Some Favorite Anchorages (Pictorial)

Thought if it would be nice for us cruisers to share some of our favorite stops with others and give a short description of how to make the most of it, together with lots of photos.

Here is one I love in the Philippines:

Illultuk Bay; N12 16’.1 E119 53’.14… where a visit to Calauit Island would have you believe you were in Africa.

During the Marcos regime, he decided to experiment to see if he could introduce African wildlife to a large remote island with similar terrain to the savannah. Many animals were brought in and flourished amazingly well, but after Marcos, the locals sharpened their spears and quite a few species found themselves on the dinner table. There are still Zebras and Giraffes to wander around, lots of birds and just a pleasant, relaxing place to stretch your legs.

The anchorage is long and skinny and at high tide you can work your way with the tender thru to the Eastern side. Surrounded by mangroves, Crabs and wild prawns abound and you can easily buy from the safari driver’s son for about $3.00/kilo.

Look forward to seeing yours.......

GREAT idea!! One of the many reasons why I love to read about cruisers is where they've been and where they are headed off to. This is a great idea to actually not just talk about it but show us!! I hope this thread just keep going!! Thanks for starting this Pelagic!!!

Pelagic,

The Phils never cease to amaze me. I just can't wait to get there!

One of my favorite spots is just north of the plane at Norman's Cay. Dinghy across the flats and there are some nice pools full of fish. This is where my wife finally learned how to swim after being on the boat for more than a year. Now she is a li'l brown fish herself

As you can see she's a little more modest than I

tyrn,

Sorry if I have offended you. Sometimes my sense of humor doesn't match everyone else's. It must be that you are always politically correct, and never misjudged anything...... BEST WISHES in staying politically correct always. I am sure it's a hard thing to do.

Follows my personal opinion - not an Administration injunction:

Whilst, I hope, we all have standards of behaviour (code of personal conduct), it must be recognized that such a diverse social community such as ours will have members exhibiting the very widest range of social (& other) standards.

Realizing that “etiquette" or "culture” has no universally accepted definition, we should strive to conform to the highest (most conservative) standards of behaviour, and refrain from derogatory comments on the behaviour of others.

Objection to nudity is a common (but not my personal) standard, and should be respected in our forum.

The term "politically correct" (PC) is currently used almost exclusively in a pejorative sense, by anti-liberal conservatives. The term was originally coined by left-liberals to denote (words & actions etc) designed for the minimisation of offense.

Here's my favorite anchorage, somewhere in the Jumentos. I can't be too specific because the lack of boats was one of the great parts. Unspoiled 2 mile beach, uninhabited island, and coral heads loaded with fish close enough I could jump off the sailboat and retrieve dinner.

jobbienooner

One of my favorite anchorages is located at Gull Island in lake St. Clair.
On the first day of summer, everyone with a boat in the metro Detroit area meets up for Jobbienooner. Thousands of boats, heavy drinking, and lots of nudity. Good time had by all.

Pelagic,
My link was not "porn". It did show some nudity at jobbienooner.
I assumed it was OK to post the link after reading GordMays post.
Dan, thank you for removing the pictures of naked men posted by others.

Just to make things clear.
Imagine2frolic posted pictures of nude men in post #4.
(picture now deleted).
I objected to the nude photos. (my objections to the nude photos has been deleted from my post #5).
Now my post #5 looks like I was wanting nudity on the forum when I was objecting to it. All that is left is my sarcastic remark.

I re-edited post #5 to more accurately reflect tyrntlzrdking's stand on the issue - as I understand it.

Now let's get back to anchorages.

BTW - There was one nude photo of one nude man. Since deleted.


From the forum rules -

Please don't post it here if you wouldn't say it to your grandmother. Posts containing explicit, obscene or vulgar language, images or links to websites with adult content/images or punctuation marks designed to "trick" our obscenity filter will be removed.
