Te Moananui

There's a boatyard in Opua where boats are in dry dock for maintenance. It's a busy place with workmen on ladders painting and sanding. This yacht is Te Moananui of Mangonui. The literal translation of the Maori; moana = sea, nui = big.  The Big Sea.  Mangonui is in Doubtless Bay about an hour north of Opua. Mangonui claims to have the best fish and chips on the North Island. I'm still taking my own survey!
