I would think you need at least 160 litres + 30% spare on 115hp 2 Stroke ???

I'm working to the rule that my 90hp (carbs) and 140hp (efi) use 1 lite per nm and a 2 stroke uses twice as much.

I dont how far the petrol station is as last time i did it there and back on what i had on board, our Irish freinds are helping.


Are the Jakeens coming?

Arklow refueling

Jono

Have you considerred running up to dun Laoghaire and refueling at the Marina?

The time saved in the refueling could be worth the extra miles and the lack of hassle with drums etc.

The plan is a 1 dayer on the sunday, leaving at 8am on the dot and there for midday, lunch and a guiness and back before dark.

Boat storage and B & B are not a problem in Pwllheli for the sat or sun night.
