The Manakai, a massive fishing vessel, getting an extension deck at Whangarei Marine.
The interior with all the fancy navigation gadgets.
Brett makes coffee in what can only be called “giant” mugs.
The plywood-fibreglass deck being cut, so that it slides into the main boat.
The stairs to get the passengers from the top to lower deck of the boat.
Ahoy, scaffolding and heavy blocks of wood!
Two cranes, one large and one smaller one, to lift the deck and get it onto the boat.
Moving the lower deck to fit in with the boat.
Close, but not quite. Another round of sawing and sanding needed to make sure the fit is snug.
