We're a rudder installation away from our completed Skerry and it is indeed a floating piece of furniture. We hope to launch sometime soon, after a year in building We purchased the recommended trailer for the Skerry from the recommended CLC vendor and have travelled locally with her in tow during the building process, before varnish and paint. Now that she's complete we want to keep her pretty as a picture. A friend has invited us to Barrington, RI for a few days of saiingl and he told us to bring the Skerry along too. We'd love to but it's a long haul from here (lower Delaware) to there, probably 7 hours by car. At this time, I'm reluctant to travel long distance without more experience. Yet I hate to pass up the opportunity to sail her in Barrington. Any advice on traveling that far with the Skerry on a trailer safely and without harm to her pristine finish? Thanks! Bob H.
