Gentlemen Don't Do It (23-Dec-2001-12-00):
[A NOTE TO OUR FAITHFUL READERS: It is the evening of December 23, and we are now anchored at Chalong Bay on the Island of Phuket, Thailand. Tomorrow night Mr. Shrode will depart to fly home to visit his ailing mother to whom we send our best wishes. The Captain will remain with Maverick over the Christmas holidays and will look forward to Mr. Shrode's return the first week in January, whereupon, after preparations have been made, we will sail for Sri Lanka.

There follow several missives which we hope will get you up to date on our voyages since Bali. They are slated with times, dates, and coordinates appropriate to the times and places they would have been written and transmitted had it been possible, and these particulars will be used to place them on the map of our voyage. This may be a bit confusing, but I think less so than the alternatives.

Thanks to all who have sent us messages of support and holiday greeting both to home and to the boat. Regards and Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Ramadan, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, whatever. Let's not get carried away.]

The following report of the trip from Bali to Singapore has been put in place in the chronological report order. See From Bali to Singapore: Gentlemen Don't Do It (November 21, 2001)
