Our dear Manuka is now at the doctors or better still in dry doc having her more intimate parts looked at.
We have been well looked after by Mercedes, who eventually decided that it couldn't be repaired and a new part was needed. Unfortunately this part was in Auckland. They just about managed to place the order before the deadline time for next morning delivery.
We have now escorted her sorrowful and aching motor back to the Hutt motorhome park for geriatric 4 wheelers to shelter from humiliation.
She's looking forward to a food free quiet night before surgery in the morning and hopefully she will be all pumped up, back on all fours ready for the sea crossing.
Lets hope she doesn't suffer from sea sickness. We might be in for a restless night.
Manuka in dry doc at Mercedes in Wellington.
Me, waiting for a decision from the surgeons on whether the problem is terminal or not.
Oh the joys of motoring.
