Hey Jon,

Just been talkin with my boss, he travelled on Martin Walsh's diesel Excalibur. He told me ye had some trip!! There was mighty craic over there as well from the sound of things!

Any idea what the total mileage was for the weekend and more importantly how much fuel did you use?? Have been looking at a new tank for next yr that will hold an additional 140litres giving me a total capacity of 250litres. Only problem is it would have to be located towards the stern, which isn't exactly ideal for weight distribution. May have to change the RIB instead

Any more pics??

Is that Joe fixing his evinrude? What went wrong??

Congrats to all, a great accomplishment, especially to the crews of the smaller RIBs!!
