Sequoiah : New Engine
Sequoiah's current owner, Jeremy Cresswell, frequently posts to The Hillyard FaceBook page; events recently have revolved around having a new engine installed, the old having proved to be repeatedly unreliable. In particular, this resulted in Sequoiah being sailed along the length of the Caledonian Cannal, the old engine being coaxed into action only at a few of the locks. I'm looking forward to hearing about Sequoiah's repowered, new lease of life in 2018.
Sequoiah has had five owners, the third, Brian, renaming her Lady Pamela J after his late wife, but she reverted to her original name with the Clarkes.
She's one of a number of 'stretched' 12 tonners, and there may well be a connection between Sequoiah and Snoqualmie as both reference North American indian tribes, though the spelling of Sequoiah is incorrect. They may well have been on the stocks at Hillyards boatyard at the same time,
