Went down to my boat earlier, had looads wrong, including one of the engines not starting... have fixed it all up as much as possible for tomorrow, only thing I couldnt get working was the starboard nav light and the spotlight.... could be worse I suppose

Will fuel up first thing, and get the boat craned in, aiming to leave drivers by 10:30 (more likely 11)

How big us your tank, it seems a lot less fkkn about to pick you up and fill up 6 jerry cans at teaso, I've got 8 plastic fuel tanks in the garden we can use and I have a very clean fuel transfer system. It also means the boat can go in the water at a conbenient time tothe yard, they might be busy on Saturday as theres a lot of boaters coming out of hibernation

About 180 litres... reason I wanted to go to the fuel station is that I dont believe my fuel guages, and have no idea how much fuel I need... if the fuel guages are right, I've lost 100+ litres of fuel some how :|

You've not lost any fuel boat wise, theres no sign of it having leaked on your decks or transom/deck well and your filters are full or any smell of fuel indicating a leak. If you have some missing it's been taken out or not put in. your tank is above deck in the console so that would be reaking if it was leaking/evaporating.

The missing fuel, if it is, has either been taken out or not put in, i'd start a thread on what is the best Anti syphon device for a boat if I were you.

Luke - apologies - only just got back to PC - however you are welcome to come out on Tuesday afternoon with me .

Met up with Avocet & Benc & it clearly shows that both Ribcraft & Parker are faster/ better rough water boats !

My crew wimped out & wanted to get lunch in Cowes & not Wooten so apologies for that too ! Hope you both made it back OK . Got into cowes to find half the contents of the oil tank emptied insude the seat & trying to find its way on to the deck - all abit of a sticky mess really . Not sure why - just tightened the filler cap & carried on.

Pics to follow shortly ( battery died at Needles so only a few )

Pete
