We are still hoping to come, if the weather is fine.
One question, not sure if we will need to re-fuel ? Will 22litres get us there and back? Bombard 380 2 up and 15hp Mercury 2 stroke? We will have 5lts spare fuel and could allways bring another 5lts no problem.
Will this be enough?

Pete.

that should be fine with the spare, last trip both Trevor and I used about the same 2 gallons.

I had 25 litres, and 2 separate gallon tanks.

phoenix that should be plenty ,all depends how much wot we can do to fuel comsumption

portland that is a fantastic offer ,(mike would have to have first shout though) my wifey and daughter had a fantastic trip with graham last time ... i think mine and xs400 (mikes) hassle is the fact its a long way for a small boat for a wee bairn
but no hassle or grief either way .. will be good to meet you guys ,in fact it will be good to follow you guys ...rofl

Yeah For some reason the pull start got caught mid pull & stopped dead & it tore out my grip. I looked down to see the end of my ring finger pointing upwards! Broken finger and snapped tendon, Now strapped up for 8 weeks with no boating!

I missed out on last years trip too! Maybe next year
