I have uploaded some short videos (MV Takapu)

Hi all,

Recently I purchased a boat.

Then I went and hauled the boat out of the water.

Then I spent lots of $$$.

Here are some videos - (mostly timelapse) of a small amount of work completed.

Feel free to subscribe and share, we will be uploading a tonne more videos about all sorts of stuff we are doing on the boat.

That's a big steely girl you've got there! I bet she twin screws nicely with those wheels so far apart.

Hey Jas,
Just checked on your latest vid's on U tube.
Nice bit of docking there at the viaduct. It aint easy when its more than 85 tons.
Gotta say your deck hand has picked it up quick.
Leaving the Whangarei harbour after the splash brings back memories.
How come you dont say much about the smoke? :-)

Thanks all,

We look forward to uploading more videos as we have time.

Yes, the viaduct is quite challenging especially with the ne'r that loves to blow.

I have written a log about the smoke, but i'll save the details for when all the facts are known. At this point - it would be unfair to try and explain it until I can do it properly.
