Paul Foerster of Alamo, CA asks:

Did you take any special precautions to prevent contact with mosquito borne diseases while in the tropical South Pacific?

Neither Dave Harlow, Ray Danet nor Tom Selman took any additional precautionary measures to ward off mosquito-borne diseases. P.A.E.'s shore crew did extensive research on all the areas the boat was to visit and did not find any warnings regarding mosquitoes on the Marshall or Micronesian Islands or in Singapore. The boat never made its way to what is typically regarded as "South Pacific" islands where this is more of a concern.
