"Port Dickson Marina"

Travelled down the "Malacca Straights" to Port Dickson Marina
There were two large ships a week before we left close to Singapore that
had attemped boardings but they managed to catch them!
Kept looking for "Johnny Depp" with my binoculars, I was waiting for him to get on board!
But no Show!!! Lot"s of large Black Police Ribs patrolling the straights!
They have a top speed of 35 knots!
Also The Malaysian Navy have a lot of ships in the area!
Had to push "Captain Guy"over the back to free a hession bag off the prop along the way,
& dodge mega nets and fish traps!

"Crossed The Singapore Straight"

"Bridge that connects Malaysia & Singapore, Malaysia on Left"
 Made it across The Three Lanes of Ships
Coming up & Down the "Singapore Straight"
Had to sit sideways the middle while a couple of
kick ass ships passed by! Got honked by one! They Pass very close!
Travelled up the coast Singapore on one side Malaysia
on the other. Have to keep to one side as
if you stray to close to the Singapore side
 The Patrol & Coast Guard boats call
you up to change course! They followed us
down to the Entrance to "Puteri Harbour Marina"
 Singapore has huge fences with razor wire all along their shores!
