Te Ruru returned to the water on opening day.
While the project is far from complete, the metalwork and much of the rewiring is now complete, and the new fuel system has been commissioned.
Engine servicing is underway, and we have started installing the new electronics package. Upholstery, windscreen wiper, horn, and new pontoons will all be installed soon.
We hope the remaining work will be completed before the end of October. In the meantime, Te Ruru should be available for normal race support as usual.
The photos below were taken in the week before opening day as the Te Ruru was being recommissioned.
