I for one would certainly not attempt that journey on my new boat on my own....!
Don't worry - my brain was removed many years ago.

Will probably sink from carrying too much safety gear - my anchor cable and chain would hold the Titanic.

I intend to cruise around the Channel Islands for a few days first to get a feel for things.

My main worry is that my 15hp aux is at home - bit too big to take with me on the ferry!!!

I am going across as a foot passenger as Condor ferries are very expensive - they have a total monopoly!!!

a good plan spending a few days getting used to it and also making sure there are no faults etc as everything beds in. When i take mine out for the first time i would like to be accompanied by another boat just in case the engine fails or something silly happens!

i might buy one of those aux holders and pop one of my small engines on as well just in case for the first few trips..

Cod,

I think you are quite brave bringing it back from the CI for effectively its maiden voyage. Can you not ship the engine out to prosport in advance so its waiting for you when you go to pick up the boat. If you send it by "road" rather than one of the "express" services I would have expected it to cost about 50 quid.

HTH,

Neil

A sack truck would be the thing Codders , and, if the Seacat went fart you'd be able to whip out your your 15hp and say " OK folks no need to panic, Codders is here" as you look for somewhere to bolt the thing on. The ladies would be well impressed.
