I'd basically agree with John, but bear in mind the following:

Last weekend you could have safely made the passage in a SIB! The high pressure weather system gave such stable weather that we had a smooth crossing both outwards and return, a very unusual situation.

Documentation - I believe that you should also take your SRC (authority to operate). It's also a good idea to take driving license so that you can hire a mini-moke on Alderney.

The small child issue is one that you may want to work on by building up gradually longer passages in varying conditions. And everyone on board needs to be happy with bucket and chuck-it procedures.

Have taken my 5.85m Rib across the channel in some very interesting conditions (father fell asleep) . You'll give up long before the boat.

Taking a small child, some do some don't its a long time on a Rib and can be quite tiring especially if it chops up and the little one has to hold on. Also they can get bored. Really a case of judgement for you as you know your child best.

Nice one! Looks like we might have an official RIBnet cartoonist -- I'm sure she will find no shortage of ideas
