A rebuilt (tennant) catamaran called Slime has proved a winner for Mahurangi East boatbuilder John Hughes.

John and his wife Juliet raced for four and a half hours across 50 nautical miles (93km) of ocean to take out the first leg in the SSANZ Safety at Sea Triple on July 9.

 

no stranger to racing, having won the Coastal Classic between Auckland and Russell nine times on the catamarans Split Enz, and After Burner which he built in 1986.

 

he hopes to compete in the Coastal Classic in October this year with Slime followed by the Summer Series with the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club.

Awesome to see her out of the box again!

And those overhangs! I do love a Tennant with the bow and stern riding high!

Started life as a demountable Tennant Bladerunner (as was Ultra Violet and Afterburner initially) and was meant to be exported but lived in a box for many years when first built due to some dispute or goings on. John got it going in the early 2000's and won a few Coastals in it and then spent the last 10 years refitting and turning it into a cruising boat with inboard pods but obviously still bloody fast

 

Here she is in Coastal, probably 2001, we were in front at that stage but she cleared out soon after. Back then she was very simple and light, 3 sails, alloy rig.

 

Nothing to do with Twisted Sister. Suzy Wong or any other Turissimo

sh*t - the more you look at her - the more you realise just how much work's been done.  That is one complex aft beam, sexy new inboard pods ala Manic and TS, gang plank, new c/boards moved outboard.
