Te Ruru has been at Morris Metals in Seaview for ten days or so now. She has had most of the exploratory work done, and corrosion repairs have started.
Generally, the news is good, with little additional corrosion found so far. However, we still need to look closely at the inside of the bilges. We have discovered issues with the fuel tank, and a new fuel tank will likely be required. This isn’t unexpected.
We’ll know more this week once all of the exploratory work is done. Hopefully, Te Ruru will be done at Morris Metals early next week and be ready for the wiring and engine work to be completed.
