    Hi dude

    Seems like you have some experience there in SE Asia, and we are evaluating buying a boat in Phuket/Langkawi for 14 months (maybe more) of coastal cruising there starting in June 2019.

    I am well aware that buying a boat and cruising for this timeframe is very ambitious, but we are really keen to do so. After doing a lot of research, it seems that basing out of Phuket/Langkawi and maybe visiting Andamans/Indonesia seems to be our best plan, as it can be sailed year round, has enough yachting infrastructure, appears pretty easy to sail (we donít have a ton of experience), and is culturally/physically interesting.

    Some recent conversations with circumnavigators have made me doubt our choice of location as they feel this area is too busy, not good winds, silty water, and not interesting enough to spend more than a few months in (the South Pacific may have spoiled them).

    Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Cheers, Jeff Milum
