In this episode, we have been busy sorting and repairing Nandji after our time back in Australia. It has been a long week of preparation, but with a boat ready to sail, its time for a shake down and see if everything is working! This anchorage has been a wonderful protected place to hide away, with some crazy squalls blowing through the anchorage, it was nice to be somewhere protected. With a friendly fisherman dropping by daily to offer up his catch, we ate well and Bonita got to practice cleaning fish! WHAT A WOMEN!!
A shake down sail wouldn't be complete unless things broke!! That's why we have them I guess...
In this episode, we are out sailing and going through Nandji's systems to make sure everything works. We have been living at anchor for a few days, learning what life is like living on Nandji once again. We need to head back into the marina to continue our preparations for leaving and finalise Marley's departure to New Zealand, with a little breeze, we head back towards the marina. We are on a shakedown, so as the wind was blowing, the sails go up.... Then they all fall down.... We need to head back in to the marina for repairs instead!!
With a strict lockdown looming, we need to get out! Let's go sailing!
In this episode, we narrowly escape the regulations and head out for a shakedown sail before strict lockdown rules are implied to the country. We want to get out of the confinements of the marina and be at anchor where life is more normal. With strict regulations coming into play at mid night, we take the opportunity to head out for further sea trials of Nandji in preparation for leaving Malaysia soon. We want to test out all the systems on Nandji and make sure she is ready for the long journey ahead, sailing back to Australia.
After living in some nice apartments and some real shady ones, finally Nandji is ready for us to move back on board. Our floating home has seen some major renovations these past months and to move back on board and be preparing for the future journeys ahead, is a very special time. Countless hours has been invested into making Nandji a safe and beautiful home for our years of sailing to come. After completing the final installation of the new depth sounder, the jobs are complete. It is now time to get all our shit on board and prepare for the adventures ahead!
