Hi

I will be carrying 60 litres the same as I did last year which was enough for me (55 HP 2 stroke SR4). As others have said we can re fuel at Yarmouth.

In 2012 I used almost 75 litres from the Itchen Bridge to Yarmouth in an SR4.7 Yam 70 2 smoke, 2 up.

I put another 25 litres in at Yarmouth to get back.

Oh, and I was at WOT the whole way round

About 2am last night on the M1 !
I swear the boat has done more miles on the trailer than on the sea
Got down about 6am this morning, time for a few hours sleep now.

I hope you all have the most fantastic day (weekend). I was hoping to join you but my 99 yr old aunt has taken precedence.

Don't forget the photos!!

Thanks for all the offers of seats guys I might have to take someone up on an offer but I have been thrown a lifeline by Mike at South Coast Marine.

He has an ignition switch in stock so we're going to tow the boat down Saturday, fit it and see if that sorts the problem. We may yet manage to go RIOW in our own rib.

Cheers
Rob

Hope that's the fix, as its a long way to tow it if not - but at least more chance of it getting fixed at South Coast Marine... Good Luck!
