I would dearly love to but i'd be by far the smallest RIB and my fair-weather range is about 250nm. Alan P (and common sense) has explained previously that adding 20% more fuel does not give 20% more range. I think it would be impractical to add more than a further 50li of fuel storage to top-b hence resigned myself to a limit of 200nm cruising without refueling.

So who wants a crew?

Coincidence, eh? I'm planning to do Iceland next year, too, Mark. Maybe we can do some of it in tandem? That's if I don't rip my tubes off again!

Like everyone else I don't think my RIB is up to it, couldn't carry enough fuel.

But if anyone needs crew.
