The ship had been heading out, although the Manukau bar was reportedly closed to traffic. Leaving structural damage to ship and bridge.
July 22 2005 she ran aground near Taumatarea Point when coming into Onehunga. She had no damage and was refloated at high tide.

Thanks for encouragement Tony. The old Mangere Bridge is a wonderful spot to get photos at Port of Onehunga. If it hadn't of been raining so hard would have got very close to Spirit of Resolution.
