A beautiful waka was commissioned by the Trust, constructed and installed at the entrance of Vector Wero. 

Named Waka Nga Hononga, it symbolises union and relationship and represents the vessel that carried the carvers, their families and everyone involved in the carving, along with the staff and visitors of the events centre and white water park. The whakairo project was led by Master Carver Anton Forde with Ted Ngataki, who carved with Uenuku Hawira, Merv Hohai, Maaka Potini.

Jay Mason and his Otahuhu College students also received the opportunity to join in this very significant installation.
