We spend a week in Thailand preparing for our first big offshore passage since the refit, across the Mallaca Strait to Indonesia! https://www.sailingnandji.com
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. To learn more about this product, check out our website.
Keeping busy whilst we wait for the bimini to be completed, we finish off other jobs around Nandji that need to be done. Since leaving the boatyard we have a long list of little jobs that need to be completed to finalise the refit. One of these is to re apply kiwi grip on the new bow, so we spend the afternoon finishing off this project before going out enjoying the fact we are in Thailand after all! It can not be all work without a little play!
