Southeast Asia Cruising Guide Volume II, 2nd Edition 2008
Indonesia, East Timor, Singapore, West Thailand, Papua New Guinea
by Davies & Morgan
This is the first of the two-volume set of the Southeast Asia Cruising Guide to reach a second edition. It is the only guide that covers the entire length and breadth of a region frequently visited by round-the-world sailors, many of whom leave Australia to head west. This edition concentrates on the most frequented routes and includes the most popular stops. There are hundreds of possible anchorages, brief details of the most popular are usefully summarised in tables. Introductory sections cover planning and the last part of the book deals with more general topics including advice on provisioning and on problems that are often faced by cruisers.
STEPHEN DAVIES & ELAINE MORGAN first arrived in the region over 30 years ago. They work in Hong Kong, Stephen Davies as Director of the Hong Kng Maritime Museum an Elaine Morgan as a writer and editor.

"While this pilot is aimed at yachtsmen and indeed was surveyed from the Davies/Morgan yacht, it is just as relevant to the commercial or military mariner.
The part of the world described is one of the more interesting on our planet. Culturally, scenically, climatically and commercially, it has everything. This excellent book – now in its second edition, describes it all very enticingly.
To the usual high standard of the Imray pilots, this one is spiced up by the wit and anecdotes the authors are so good at." Ausmarine.
