Conservation work on the Rangiriri (2nd of 3)

Conservation work on the Rangiriri

In 1981–82 the Rangiriri was raised from the river and placed on the bank, but exposure to the elements caused further rust and damage to the wreck. In 2007 it was moved to higher ground, and conservation work began.
