    Calm down, you are losing your grip.

    Today's Viaduct webcam is giving a nice time-lapse of the AM base roof going on - upper right, right next to the INEOS building - scroll sideways: https://www.takeabreak.co.nz/webcams/16/auckland_viaduct_harbour_webcam

    A few days old but anything's better than endless speculation and mindless name-calling ...

    He said a loan to ETNZ was contemplated at one point, but not executed. The $3m payment was for services rendered. He believed the "$3m loan" that was claimed to have been re-classified as a payment, was a confusion/conflation of the two separate events.

    They're on top as well - twice the value!

    I think you are right, cameras or sensors of some kind, monitoring foils or arms or both. Early on they had stick-on, black dome-shaped objects that we speculated were cameras - now they look permanent. Te Aihe is now carrying a mast-head rig like Te Kahu, again, my guess is cameras monitoring sail shapes.

    I just caught her as she approached North Head, almost too late. Excuse the slight over-exposure, it was all a bit rushed.

    Also the eye is attuned to watching the smaller boat - on a larger scale, Te Aihe doesn't give the same impression of speed. Otherwise I don't see any change in the stance, just less tendency for the nose to pitch up or drop down, more pronounced through the turns.
