Moving Forward

I'm please to announce that due to a generous donation from Trailer Engineering, the first part of my solo expedition cost-saving exercise is moving forward. I now have the super-structure for the RockPod (TM) and have placed my order with Lewmar who have kindly (and patiently) agreed to supply the access and ventilation hatches for the shelter. Once these have arrived and been fitted, along with the fixing points previously supplied by William Hackett, I just need to insulate the RockPod and decide on a method of levelling it out once on Rockall.
The other half of the cost saving exercise, boat charter, continues in the background...

Good Bit of Press

I managed to get a good bit of press for the upcoming EU-189 and my own Rockall Solo expedition today albeit local to my home area. Hopefully some financial sponsorship may come of it...
