Bruce and Kerry
We received an email from a sailmail address of a boat we did not recognise, but on the list of sent to was another email address which I assume is for you.
We sent this email a while ago and wondered if you have received it or if you have changed email addresses.
Hope all is well.

Dear Bruce and Kerry
We are forwarding this email from Elaine Morgan as we thought you might be able to help with notes on anchorages in islands in the Philippines. She is one of the authors of cruising in SE Asia Vol 1 and 2. We have been providing her with our notes of last year, but as you know, we did not go to the Philippines. If you are happy to do this can I forward you email address to her? Or alternatively you could contact her and explain that we have made contact with you regarding this.
We are enjoying a few months in UK and seeing family and friends. We hope that you are both well.
Kind regards
Duncan and Ria

Dear Ria and Duncan

I much enjoyed reading the article. Thanks very much for this and the associated table. Info will be included in a supplement to Volume 2.

 In retrospect, do you think you would have missed a lot around the coast if you had not had your contacts? I wonder also if you heard of anyone visiting Bitung again, or the anchorages we marked on the chartlet in Vol 2 of the guide (page 78) such as Kendari or the islands of KepTake Bone Rate?We didn't go there either, but others have.

With what you have already given me for Volume 1 and some input from other sources, I am now hoping to start the work on the revised edition of Vol1 around Easter, once the next issue of the magazine I edit has gone to press. That said, should you find changes when you are back in Malaysia/ Singapore, please do let me know.

I am still looking for new info on the PHilippines, although I do have some leads. Should you hear of anyone else going in that direction I would be very glad of their contact details. So far I haven't heard back again from Cookie Cutter. 

Best wishes, wherever you are, and thanks again,

Dear Elaine and Ken,
Further to my Email of 30 Jan, I am afraid that there were a few errors of detail in the table that I sent you. these have now been corrected and the updated table of anchorages is attached. Please destroy the earlier one to avoid confusion.
Elaine,I have also attached a copy of the article we sent to Anne Hammick for the Flying Fish which you asked for. The attached one is a little longer than the final version for Anne and therefore includes a bit more detail.
Ken, wonderful to hear that Jane has been finally given the "all clear", it must be such a relief to both of you. We hope that you had a good time in UK despite the very wintery weather.
Very best wishes to you all for the "Year of the Snake", hope that you are having a great Chinese New Year holiday.
Kind regards
Ria and Duncan
