Don't think I can make it either anymore! I am well gutted! I am homeless now, rented house and landlord selling - and that's the weekend I have to be out, so unless I can be out and that before.

Are people planning in any fuel stops? What sort of arrangement for fuel would make sense? I could use jerry cans on the boat, but would like another option. I think my boat would need at least one stop to fill up....

I don't think that there will be any fuel stops, most of us who don't have in built fuel tanks carry jerry cans. I'm taking 2 x 20 ltr and a 10 ltr jerry cans and I have 2 x 22ltr fuel tanks under my jockey seat which is plenty to get me round on a 60 hp Etec.
