Do we need to fuel up in groups, with someone riding shotgun, or just chance the abuse
Just fill them and don't tell anyone.

I am sure some of the other big ribs will be willing to do so as well. Remember it's all about knowing your limits... if the weather is kind and the sea is like a mill pond there should be no problem getting round for most of us. Please remember to carry enough fuel for the day and to carry it in adequate containers making sure that they are well lashed down to your boats.
kerny, can i jump on with you if it gets a bit ruff
