I am fixing to sail from Seattle to the Philippines and Thailand. You should do it. And do it before you are too old.
I will, I just need to save some $ first. I've already done a lot of traveling, including sailing from Thailand to Egypt by way of Maldives, Yemen, and Eritrea. I could die tomorrow and have no regrets of not having seen and done much more than I could ever have deserved.
@RenegadeSailor what, no stop at Hawai'i? How long do you estimate the voyage?
Gonna stop in Hawaii, unless I take the Aleutians route 🥶⛵
Part of what I love about my plan is the Aleutians part; it's not the typical warm and welcoming leg of a voyage, but I think it will be beautiful and epic.
Oh yeah, it is some beautiful country out there but you really have to watch the shoal draft waters.
Nice! How are you liking the boat life so far?
It’s an adventure. Everything’s damp and it’s amazing how quickly the place looks like a tornado struck.
Adding insulation to the hull will help with the dampness.I am assuming you're north of 40°?
Yes, im about 48N. I’m giving serious thought to getting a dehumidifier for while we are in port.
A dehumidifier is a great idea in port. Insulation is even better. I am at about the same Latitude on the west coast. Every Insulation project I have done has paid off in spades!

The archipelago outside of Stockholm is heart to sail through. So many small islands, many with houses on them. Wear a sweater.
@Jersey2 I think you need to let them hold a 10,000 deposit to visit gonna be a minute
Palau - that would be super cool. Maybe check out Peleliu in there.
The Bikini Atoll is full of radiation isn’t it?
Yeah, bikini glows in the dark.
@Exterminatore... Yeah, it is unfortunately. It’s a shame though because it’s such a beautiful place. I used to want to visit the Bermuda Triangle (outskirts) to observe whether the myths are true and to see whether the current could cause ships to sink and effectively disappear. Lol @RenegadeSailor I have heard that once.
Then come Turkey, we are white too, you won’t draw attention.
There is actually an under sea volcano there, you have to avoid sailing over the top of it because it puts off so much gas that it makes the water no longer bouyant enough to float a boat and you will immediately sink.
I did say "& see what happens" I would go when I was ready to die
