HAERAE MAI KAITAKI/CHALLENGER

I have done just that and they are in the gallery.
It was a fine day but a bitterly cold northery did not encourage us to tarry.
See the photos for further comments.
More will come after open day.
She is most impressive from the outside but could do with a bit of paint here and there.
She's off to Picton tomorrow for a shakedown run.

The Picton trip obviously to make sure she'll fit!!
A very impressive ship, the likes of which has not been seen in New Zealand before.
