On Monday July 9, 2018 Captain Bill Fenelon on behalf of Major Projects Foundation took possession of the vessel. Traditional exchange of gifts between former Captain Commander Muzz Kennet and  Bill on behalf of the foundation sealed the deal. A week with the New Zealand Navy followed where the volunteer crew underwent intensive training on how to safely operate a very complex piece of machinery. 

She was delivered safely across the Tasman arriving in Newcastle on July 16.
