Alien, 36ft catamaran rebuild.
I undertook the rebuild of a David Alan Williams designed, Green Marine built catamaran Alien alone during university.
I began work on alien during university on a mission to completely reconstruct the cross beams, solid trampoline deck and most importantly the mast support.
Unfortunately for me I am the type of person that like’s to do things myself, so I got stuck into tackling the rebuild alone. Half way through the project, mid summer, covered in carbon dust, dripping in sweat and epoxy, and with tan lines from my dust mask, I admit I thought I’d gone down the wrong route going solo.
A slightly underestimated year and six months later after some serious hard work, including lots of unexpected angle grinding, hull and center board repairs, I finally managed to raise the mast in July 2006. The big launch day came on 12th August 2006 it was amazing.
