    Hi surfmachine,

    I've been pouring over your various posts, because, there is so little information on cruising west Sumatra (and little on much of indonesia). We (family of 4) are planning to spend a year or two cruising in SE Asia, and, I am coming to realize that doing so sounds not as amazing (lots of folks telling me Phuket/Langkawi is lost paradise) or more difficult (indo) than I had previously thought.

    Your accounts of west Sumatra though sound more like what I am interested in. As well as getting to other parts of Indo. I was wondering if I could ping you about a few things like best timing, anchorages, provisioning, etc.

    Very interested in joining you on your trip if you are still looking. I've been professional crew for 10 years including 3-4 as captain of a 76' MY so I can hold my own on almost any vessel. Been surfing for 25 yrs, some worldwide travel, last year I only got as far out that way as Micronesia. I live in Florida, USA and can get to singapore right away. the rest of the way would take some figuring. I fly for free on a US major airline so that is why Singapore is an option. Please get back to me at your earliest convenience, I would love to discuss this with you further. If not, have a great trip!
