Sailing Nandji: A New “Triple” Post/2

Our Bad Ass Bow Upgrade | Sailboat Refit (Sailing Nandji) Ep 131

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we finish off the upgrades to the bow. When we first arrived to the boatyard and were in destruction mode, we ripped up the front deck and removed all the rot and the old useless windlass. We have since re-laid the deck and fibreglassed up a solid bow ready for the new additions. I designed a new bow roller for Nandji and we install this piece of engineering genius! I designed and adjusted the pulpit hand railing and we install our new anchor windlass. Our bow is covered in shiny new stainless steel and looks amazing with the new paint job underneath!!

Game of Thrones on a Boat | Sailboat Refit (Sailing Nandji) Ep 132

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we say good bye to Uncle! The seasons are changing and he wants to get into Indonesia for the surf season before the weather turns bad. Such a legend and we are so very grateful that he has spent the last 2 months with us helping to upgrade Nandji.

Before Uncle goes, he helps us to fibreglass in our cockpit floor again and re install the helm to make Nandji ready to sail once again. Our Sailboat Refit is nearly complete and this is the second to last job that needs to be completed before we can go back in the water.

We have lived 9 long months without a fridge, yep NO FRIDGE! Our toilet has always been something that we are not happy with as it draws lots of power and is generally not a nice item to fix, therefore, we get a new one! We install the fridge and remove the old head to install the new shiny throne. Playing the game of thrones on a boat is something new. This toilet is a prize winning piece of engineering though and can be installed basically anywhere!

ITS SPLASH DAY! | Our Sailboat Refit is Finished…(Sailing Nandji) Ep 133

In this episode of Sailing Nandji, the final task of boatyard boatwork gets done as we sand back and re antifoul the hull of Nandji. This is a filthy and tiring job but lucky for us we have spent many hours previously preparing the hull and sanding back and fixing areas meaning this time around, the task was kind of easy! Then after a few little dramas before lifting time, we manage to get everything in order and be put back in the water. Will everything work? I HOPE SO!!!!
