An interesting project early Thursday morning the 130 had the opportunity to lift NZL 81 out of the water and onto Sulphur point ready for shipping. Many people may remember NZL 81 from the Americas Cup. A quick google search tells the story. All the more reason to wish the current team the best of luck! Check out the Team NZ website here.
Pictured below Greg works with the team from Pelco to help unload Tuna on the Mount wharf. The team work 24 hour shifts to ensure the ship is able to return to sea as soon as possible.

Pictured our 130 Tonne Crane - GMK5130 in the Te Puke Parade. We all had a great day out! With the 130 Tonne Crane dressed as Lofty the crane which the kids loved. Ron drove as Bob the builder, Lynda dressed as Wendy and Jordon was up in the top cab dressed as Scarecrow.
