Danga Bay Marina is a short distance from the City of Johor Bahru … and a MR1.00 bus ride. 

A sad yachty hung himself, on-board his yacht, today! How down must you get to end your life like that? The Police swarmed over the marina and evacuated all people on yachts, in order to remove the body with the maximum degree of decorum. He was not one of the Rally Fleet!

 

Travelled to Singapore, via earthen causeway, (there’s another newly built bridge on the western side of Singapore … near Raffles Marina … which has a clearance of 25 metres for yacht mast clearance … 

* MAY BE CALLED THE `WESTERN CONNECTION' BETWEEN SINGAPORE AND MALAYSIA ... *

thereby allowing yachts into Johor Bahru, Danga Bay and a new multi-billion Ringgit development at Puteri Harbour … all in Malaysia, just one mile across the strait from Singapore.) … primarily to pick up the Yamaha outboards ignition coils from the Dealer. All was in order and I fitted them the next day … thereby giving me a two-motor configuration again! What a relief. Also fitted a new camshaft drive belt

* THIS BRIDGE HAS 25 METRES CLEARANCE TO THE WATER-LINE ... DOESN'T LOOK IT WHEN YOU ARE GOING UNDER? *

to the port motor … it’s called `preventive maintenance’.

 

Cats are not designed to operate on one motor … although a few cats are purpose-designed with just one motor situated in the centre of the yacht. They are a disaster to maneuver in a marina … or, any tight spot, ask their owners!

Maybe I shouldn’t mention the Rats at Danga Bay Marina?

Another very pleasant outdoor Dinner at Danga Bay!

* APPROACHING `DANGA BAY' ... ON THE LEFT A RECENTLY COMPLETED GOVERNMENT OFFICE COMPLEX ... NICE! *
