Up anchor at five AM and we motored to Dobo, dropping our hook in the roads amid a Jap fishing fleet. Waited five hours for port officials but no buzz so Skipper and Jop went in to see what’s what. Soon they yelled to us that it was OK for us to came ashore. Oakes met Sheldons and borrowed fifteen guilders.

Town smelly, but rather clean. Beer best of cruise. No bank and so money is scarce. Jop getting ribbing for no visit of officials.
