are valuable...to people already underway. You really need to skip the books
and just go, You'll quiclky learn the books are half wrong, half outdated, half right :-)
Paperwork changes, marinas
appear and disappear, fuel
comes and goes, but it just doesn't really matter. It all works out. And the cruiser community is the most valuable source of info and rumor.
I've been in SE Asia
for a few months now. Haven't looked at a book. Got 'em. But haven't used them. Friends tell me what I need to know.
Even the weather
info is half useless. It's either nice or it's not. Bad and good happen at any time.
