    • thanks victor. having to battle a 2.5 meter swell in selat sunda for 21/2 hours really paid off. that was quite an accomplishment for me – having this kind of experience and for not throwing up in the boat! 😀

    • thanks. if only the alert level was not as critical as that particular day, we would have landed on the island itself. alas, it gave us a memorable experience indeed.
