Only been to Malaysia a few times, and then only briefly (and sans Boat) - but somewhere that I do intend to have good look around one day, I really liked the place / people
From memory, the west coast
seems to be more popular for folk cruising through (but google
will tell you more!) - appreciate that KL is a little way away, but if you have own car would consider driving to wherever Google
suggests looking and then get chatting to folks.
A very good chance that could p/x a lift
in your car / your local knowledge (even if not actually very local!) for some seatime / informal lessons - even if it is only a run to a supermarket or a drop back into KL......A first hand heads up on the hows and whys in another country is always valuable - and IME opinions from the more people the better, so your knowledge will have value to folks with boats.....also having a car makes you more valuable
Being willing to part with some beer
likely to swing any deal
.......well, would certainly work for me
