10m in the air – making an impact
Day 10 started with a couple of our local crane drivers running late – so we were a bit concerned with the taurapa to install on top of the bow – and the tauihu onto the bow of the waka. Once the crane drivers arrived we were a bit worried – as the wind has got up. As soon as we hooked the taurapa on – the wind died down and the taurapa was landed onto the stern.
A big day for us – as it means this is the first time we have seen the waka since 2011. Hes’ back – great day.
Here are the guys after a healthy lunch at our local cafe – behind us are pohutukawas, which is pretty cool – there are often hummingbirds feeding of the tree.
we just installed the roof – so thought it was a great photo opportunity – Trace and Boi
We have worked hard to put all roof and side wall fabric onto the waka – this means it is fully enclosed.

Rather than post a progress shot of the waka – here is what we eat every morning – cholesterol count isn’t going to be good when we get home! Lucky we work hard everyday to burn this off! America know how to host their guests!
