SR4, while a fine boat, wouldn't be the weapon of choice for this trip.

Me neither, too small, too slow, but by the look of it, there are some braver soles than I by hure. :-D

It's all about the weather/sea state. In flat calm conditions, you really need a boat that will comfortably cruise at 25knts min.

The Scillies are a Great location for a cruise but as already mentioned so very weather dependant. Our Cornish Gig club were going to row over last May from Falmouth for Charity a total of 56 miles one way. They actually did it 9 months later due to rubbish weather.
You never get the same sea state twice even when there is a weather window.

The first time I did the Scillies, we had glassy seas there and back and for the duration of the stay. Virtually every crossing since has been 'interesting'.
