Haul out - Malaysia east coast

Hi all,

I'm currently in Cambodia and have a 35ft steel Adams requiring urgent haul out. I did some chipping and scraping a few days ago and now taking on small amount of water...
I'm seeking recommendations for haul out and handstand facilities on Malaysia's east coast.

Thanks,

Lloyd

Re: Haul out - Malaysia east coast

This is the Sail Malaysia Cruising Guide description of Endau on the East Coast. It's a reliable guide but you would obviously need to check the latest details about the yard itself.

"A recommended anchorage to await the high tide for the river entrance to Endau is at 02°39’.65N 103°45’.15E, which is sheltered and with good holding on mud. An alternative is to anchor at Pulau Seri Buat/Pulau Sembilang (see above). Anchoring off the river entrance is risky. In 2012 a steel yacht anchored near the river entrance was run down by a trawler and severely damaged. The trawler continued intotheEndauriverwithoutinvestigatingwhatithadjust hit.Repairstookmonths.
The river bar is shallow and the channel moves from season to season. The channel is well marked, but the buoys may not have caught up with the channel’s recent moves. In May 2012 a route using the following waypoints provided a minimum depth of just over 3 metres at high spring tides: 02°40’.92N 103°40’.63E, then 02°40’.03N 103°39’.24E, then 02°40’.02N 103°38’.40E, and then mid-river. This route cuts right over a charted mud bank on C-Map charts. It would certainly be worth taking note of the routes taken by the big C-class fishing boats, many of which are usually underway at high tide. In 2013 the red port hand buoy at about 02°40’.0N 103°39’.14E in the entrance channel was replaced with a black-paintedbeacon.
The town has good shops and reasonable bus services to Mersing and Rompin, with onward connections to Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur. It is possible to anchor on mud to the north side of the river. The holding is suspect in some areas, with much detritus to foul an anchor.

Prospect Dockyard is a railway-based haulout facility and shipyard that has branched into yacht repair and maintenance. The railway suits long-keeled yachts well, but deep fin-keel yachts are less easy to accommodate. Tel: (609) 413 1868. Mobile: 013-931 8900. Email: proboat@streamyx.com. Mark your email FAO Ms Ng.
