I don't think the rib is too small, there's people planning to go in 5.4m seariders (maybe me included). It comes down to weather conditions, engine reliability, being able to carry enough fuel and the required gear etc, and the ability of the hull.
The seariders are well known for having very good hulls, I don't know about the one you have but size wise it should be OK, then just cmes down to weather, careful planning, seastate etc.

Accomodation

Time to get some real planning done. If everyone can supply the numbers for this trip by the end of February then we can look at booking some accomodation. I'm away till then so can't do much before then unless someone wants to tak up the mantle in my place.

I'll start the ball rolling with :-

Zerstorer - Two people on Board - Would like a B & B or cheap hotel.

(Not too bothered if its seedy).

Mrs7 (she will be by then) and I are up for this, a night under the stars with the gentle sound of the waves lapping on the nearby beach, or more likely that great big foghorn. We might even ruff it on Old Spice

Can I suggest we meet up in Yarmouth as this would give everyone the opportunity to fill up fuel tanks to the brim prior to crossing. They have both petrol and red stuff. From memory its 58 miles from the Noodles to Alderney, so NAAFI break half way? also worth thinking about a crusing speed that will suit everyone. 22 -24 knots if its calm should provide a comfortable sort of trip without everyone hanging on for dear life.

Fuel is a available in Alderney but its cans from the nearby garage (200m) unless Brian has a small trailer perhaps

Because I'm away soon if you could all highlight your details in bold and green type I'll collate them at the end of FEB to give to one of our island friends to help us out.

Guys and Gals,

As far as accomodation goes...................think of the Scilly's.......

This is a very small island, 3 miles by 1. Sometimes called "2000 drunks clinging to a rock". Accomodation is very limited. At the moment there are only 2 hotels. The Braye Beach (old Seaview) v. expensive-forget it, and the Bellevue. The Bellevue was £65pp pn.
B&B is also v. scarce and around £40pp pn. During the season it all gets very booked up. I would suggest you book early.
Tel Nos. to help you are:
Bellevue Hotel 01481 822844

B&Bs:
Maison Bourgage 01481 824097
Town House 01481 824897
St Annes 01841 423145
Farm Court 01481 822025
Bonjour 01481 822152

Or the Alderney Accomodation website:
