Mom and Cate,
Mom, thanks for the quick decision about the sunglasses. Good choice and
I appreciate you making it. I thought that I would try to do it solely
through the company and not through you to see how it worked out. It is
clear to me now that companies do not like to send stuff overseas if their
card-holder is addressed in the US. I will now have the opportunity to
see how the item will pass through the Thai system. I hope it is not too
I will go to the post office today to check.
I wanted to let both you and Cate know that I can receive stuff at this
address for the next month or two.
Koh Pangan, Surat Thani
I wanted to first say that I appreciate all the effort that both my mom
and my good friend have put in to get me parts from the States. I am thankful.
Second I have a few more things that I have to ask for. If you can't get
them its OK, but I need them so I must ask.
1 - MD2 Volvo Penta Piston Rings and Pistons (new or used)
(I know you are already looking)
2 - charts on Malaysia's main island groups on the east and west coast
and good ports of call. (I will try to move fairly fast through Malaysia
but for safety reasons I believe it is wise to know where I can escape
storms and go for supplies) Detailed on the island groups and major ports
with one large general chart would be ideal.
3 - Propane gas detector that operates on DC for boats or Mobil-homes
4 - Block and Tackle Boomvang with 8:1 purchase including rope but fittings
are not needed.
Thanks a lot. I know you are both pretty busy so I won't be let down if
you can't get these.
Thanks a lot.
