We plan to overhaul the entire engine compartment and everything to do with the old engine. New drive system including gearbox, new exhaust system and new fuel system, including the fuel tank itself. The old fuel tank was made out of steel and had become rusty and no doubt close to leaking, time to fix everything and get this old stuff of our boat. With some clever rigging techniques, steadily the old fuel tank and our old engine "Old Smoky" are removed and taken away.
With such a massive list of tasks we wish to complete on Nandji to get her ready for the Indian Ocean, what better place to start then to rip out the old stuff! We have been so lucky to have a fellow yachtie and an absolute legend wish to help us upgrade Nandji. Every day Uncle Kevin rocks up to Nandji ready to start work and help us get Nandji amazing and back in the water sooner. We are so lucky to have met Kevin and the wisdom he brings to us everyday.
Thanks legends, this is the first of many videos to come about our extensive boat refit. As we are consistently have 10 jobs on the go, we will try our best to compile each job on the list in one video. This making it easier to understand each step of each job. Therefor expect lots of shorter than usual videos about our refit!
We hope you enjoy the vid!
