    I’m guessing you’ll probably say “thanks but no thanks”, but I was wondering if there was an address you guys could share where I could send something?  Or, others could send stuff, too.  I don’t want to put you on the spot, but thought I would ask.  It may not be feasible until you stop for some refit work somewhere.

    ooooh, we love receiving anything by post or courier! Usually there isn’t an address, but it looks as though we will be back and forth from Sutera Harbour Marina through until next year, here’s the address:

    Jamie Furlong – SY Esper,
    Sutera Harbour MARINA OFFICE,
    Sutera Harbour Marina,
    1 Sutera Harbour Boulevard
    Sutera Harbour
    88100 Kota Kinabalu
    Sabah, Malaysia

    Tel: (60) 6088 318 888

    Cheers!

    Peace and fair winds!

    Oh goody – when will this address be viable?  Now?  You’re still in Borneo, correct?

    Yes, we’ll be in Sabah, Borneo, for months yet. We will be sailing and traveling but the marina will be our constant base. They will hold on to any deliveries while we are away.

    Cheers! x

    This dummy was under the assumption that Borneo was not part of Malaysia.

    Is there anything specifically that *can’t* be shipped?

    I wouldn’t send anything that’s alive or any food! We get all kinds of things shipped here, sometimes there are custom duties to pay, that’s the only thing to look out for.

    Intrigued!

    Peace and fair winds!

    You’re not the only one, I had to look it up before we came this way!

    We were only discussing last night how ‘Borneo’ doesn’t actually exist as a country. It’s an island with three Malaysian states (Sabah, Sarawak, Labuan) and two other countries, Indonesia (Kalimantan) and Brunei.

    Pretty interesting history which I’m still getting to grips with. The usual British colony (sigh)…

    Peace and fair winds!

    But no booze, correct?  😀

    I wouldn’t want you to get tagged for customs duties for anything.

    Haha, we’d get lumbered with all kinds of taxes and questions for receiving alcohol, I’m sure! 😁🤔😉

    Would spices be considered “food”?

    Not sure about that, Shawn. Can you smoke it?

    I’ll plead the 5th Amendment on that :-).  I thought some food grade spices/herbs for people that like to cook would be interesting.  The no liquor thing kinda leaves my planned box a little light.  Going to send you guys something I made, but since I can’t through in some single malt – I’m hoping for something else useful and almost as enjoyable.

    Exciting!

    BTW, spices are probably OK as long as they are clearly labeled…

    Excellent.  I think I know what you guys make for useful and interesting stuff.  Are fragile things handled with care, if marked?  I’m assuming robust packing.
