What a nightmare this was!! This is the second day of our passage sailing from Malaysia to Indonesia
In this episode, things take a drastic turn for the worse. After working so hard to escape the clutches, lockdowns and rules in Malaysia regarding travel, we are on our way to the next chapter in our lives and are on our second day of passage to Inodnesia. After 30 hours of glorious sailing we had made massive in roads on our 150 nautical mile crossing across the Malacca Strait. Then, in the middle of the shipping channel, surrounded by ships, things go horribly wrong.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, it is time to paint our interior. We want to brighten up the interior and bring a more modern feel to the space. We tried to keep the traditional building style by planking up areas of the boat, but adding a modern touch by painting areas white. We had sanded back all the other woodwork which will be varnished in the future. It is important to do a really good job on the bulk head as we have changed this from wood to now be white. Since this is the first thing you see when you enter down the companion way, it must be perfect with no imperfections. This takes a WHOLE lot of time. Hours of sanding and priming then repeat. With a great foundation the first coats of the top coat area applied and what a transformation!
