Repairing the Kaitaki

The Interislander ferry Kaitaki slipped its moorings during the big storm in Wellington the other night and the vessel and crew ended up having to spend the night anchored in the harbour to wait out the storm. The next step was for divers to assess the damage. The new mooring is right in front of my apartment, so I had a good view this afternoon at four o'clock as a large crane lifted off a huge twisted piece of metal - hopefully a hatch or internal bulkhead rather than the bow freight doors or a piece of the hull!
