For those of you who enjoy maps like I do, I’ve processed our GPS tracks from our 7 passages from Phuket, Thailand to Puteri Harbour, Malaysia. The total length of the passage was nearly 570 nautical miles, over the course of 8 days, with one night passage. We had to avoid overnight passages because of the many, many fisherman and their fishnets. But, we took a risk, and did the one overnight passage by following the edge of the Singapore ship channel on a full moon night. We had no issues, and with the help of our new digital radar and AIS transceiver, we felt quite comfortable with our ability to see, and be seen, by other vessels. Here is the resulting map with different colors for each of the passages.
