Where's Parlay- Pangkor Marina
12 August 2017
After our trip back home to Australia we have arrived back in Pangkor Marina, I had heaps of requests to restart the blog so here it goes;
We are in Pangkor marina at the moment, Ray has reinforced the galley (ship's kitchen) floor, he removed damaged wood under the fridge & replaced it with new hard as steel wood from the sawmill. He has also reinforced the hatches with heaps of screws & wood, he has reinforced most of the beams underneath the floor and at the moment he is removing the teak beading from the hatches, which will be replaced with new beading once the tiling is completed. We were really impressed that the floor was in good condition after 27 years, it shows the original builder took care when they built this ship. We are due to leave the marina on the 20th August but if the floor is not finished we will stay until it is completed, Ray said it will take a while for the skirting to be completed because it's going to be a jigsaw puzzle. Plus it has to be sanded & varnished.
We are happy here at the moment our neighbors are friendly & the wet season rains have started, cooling off the evenings. My only gripe is I am limited to how much I can use the galley because there is no sealed floor.
Tomorrow we are taking the day off, we are planning a ferry trip to Pangkor island for lunch & a bit of R&R. Poor Ray's back needs a rest. Until next time
