The latest shots released by the team shows hull painting and graphics near completion.
It is believed that she will be taken to the Viaduct Harbour where her keel will be fitted and mast stepped. Her mid-race service has been undertaken at the YDL facility in West Auckland while the repair was underway.

The In-Port Practice racing gets underway in Auckland in a week.
