Work Hard, Play Hard! Welcome back Bikini Life! | Sailing Langkawi (Sailing Nandji) Ep 135
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, its time to run the hours up on our new engine fang as we sea trial our new motor. After installing our new engine we soon realised that we would be in need of an autopilot as we plan to do a bit of motoring around Indonesia chasing waves.
We break the bank and purchase a CPT Autopilot which is stand alone easy to install unit. Yosh installs the autopilot and we sea trial the new autopilot. We may be out of the boatyard but we still have crap every where and lots of little tedious jobs to finalise.
Each day whilst we wait for our good camera to be fixed and returned to us, we work 8 hours on the boat anchored somewhere nice away from people and then in the afternoon light, go exploring around the islands. Work hard, Play hard! It is good to be back in a bikini and sailing Langkawi finally.
The SPOOKY SECRET PIRATE COVE | Sailing Thailand (Sailing Nandji) Ep 136
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after 3 long months in Langkawi, the day arrives where we can set some sails and depart onwards to our next adventure. Leaving Langkawi feels like such an accomplishment after working so hard on upgrading our vessel.
With hundred’s of islands between Langkawi and Thailand, it would be rude of us not to explore some of these magical lands. The geography of the area is simply stunning and then reading about a secret pirate cove hidden away on one of these islands, we knew we had to investigate.
Needing to swim through pitch darkness for 80 metres through a bat ridden cave, at times the rock came so close to the waters surface you could barely sneak through without holding your breath. Then once you think your completely lost, you duck under the last rock ledge and emerge into the most beautiful pristine secret pirate cove.
The waters of Thailand were run with pirates years ago and this is where they hid their plunder. Behind the emerald light, to the place the eye can not see. TO find the light, you must first find the darkness… Arrrr
Provisioning on a Scooter, NOT Recommended | Sailing Thailand (Sailing Nandji) Ep 137
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we arrive to the island of Phuket in Thailand. Wasting no time, we head straight to land and hire a scooter to begin the daily missions of chasing up everything we need for our next big adventure to Indonesia and the Indian Ocean.
We collect the essentials, ranging from surfboards and fishing rods to toilet paper and epoxy! We get our NEW Flexible Solar panel by Solbian Solar panels stitched onto our bimini. Nandji now has a little bit of luxury with 2 fridges installed and we want to maximise the amount of solar energy we can harness installing the new SXX 180 flexible solar panel. These panels are new technology and we are excited to now have over 700 watts of solar on Nandji.
