How much fuel did you use in the end and how long was the crossing, have you got the track on mapsource?

Thanks for the offer of a place on both your boats, I went out on a friends work do on Friday lunch time and didnít get in until 01:00 not a pretty site.

Hope you all had a great Xmass and see you soon.

My Camera that got wet at the end of the video is fine - the one luke knocked of the pub table when we are having lunch is not

My new Navman F2100 claimed i used 97 litres - but when i refilled i could only get 82 litres in the tank.

I have yet to find out if this discrepancy is an inaccuracy in the Fuel flow meter or due to an air pocket in the under deck tank due to the boat being at a very slight nose down angle when i refilled.

You can download the track log from here http://www.riblog.co.uk/blog/uploads...esTrackLog.zip there is a Google Earth file and the Garmin Database file in the zip. Top speed for the day was 37 knots according to the track log.
