Good to try somewhere different so Wicklow still sounds best (and the IOM on Sunday of course)
It certainly was back in record time! My knees have only just recovered Dave

I'd be well up for it, though I think it's a bit ambitious in a 3.6m!

I'm sure we have a RIBnetter near "Wickla" who is in the know
My office is just 20 miles away from Wicklow. Not a place I usually go to as the main N11 goes right past .. But I could make a short trip down and have a look folks. Then I'd love to take the boat down and meet up when you all come over.

I'll let you know what I think .....

Thanks tony any information ref, pubs, fuel, accommodation, etc will be a great help, it looks like most want a night out

Would be good if we can meet up with yourself and a few local ribsters

I would love to do this with you guy's but to be honest, I don't think that I have got the experience or boat set up for this kind of trip. Two 20 ltr portable tanks under the consul seat = 40 ltrs another three 20 ltr containers strapped to the rear = 100 ltrs which should be enough for the crossing, but if it gets rough, I don't really want to be filling up my under seat tanks by hand. For the rest of you guy's this should be a great experience and adventure for you all
