In about January 1986 it was blown clear of its sledge and rolled up the hill. It was deemed to be a complete wreck; though most of the damage was internal. The operation of remounting the hut on a sledge for the return trip to Mawson was very delicate, as can be imagined, on that rocky sloping terrain with the wind roaring up the valley.
The original Fang Peak freighter was partly refurbished in 1987. Then in 1988 an expeditioner at Mawson put the finishing touches to the interior, including a picture window and carpeted floor. It was towed to Macey lsland on 24 June 1988 and guyed down just on the Auster side of the Island.
