A huge thank you to Nick and all the guys at Continental Trailers, who donated a day’s work and assorted spare parts to get Sedna’s trailer roadworthy in time for her trip across the States from east coast to west, and thank you to George Knutsson for co-ordinating this magnificent and generous effort.
The trailer had been bought on my behalf in Antigua at extortionate cost, but was not well-suited to its purpose. Sedna did not sit squarely on the supports and had shifted in transit between Miami and here, the lights didn’t work properly, and the wheelguards had been removed so a stone could have flicked up at the hull and damaged it. All these faults have now been rectified, plus a few other enhancements besides, so Sedna now sits rock-solid and safe.
Yet again I am hugely indebted to people I’ve never even met, but without whose generosity and kindness I couldn’t even attempt to do what I do. And yet again Sedna gets to go places and meet people that I’ve never seen…
