Sticking two large paddle wheels on the side coupled to and exercise bike fitted onto the jockey, renaming the boat Mississippi is another option. Cardiac arrest anyone?

Probably better to ask Bedajim how he did it.

One thing worth mentioning, if I'm carrying an aux I'll generally have a tank to go with it too. Say your main fuel is contaminated, or your fuel hose is damaged, then with a backup tank you'll still be able to get home True it's more space, but worth it in my opinion!

And 2.5 should be more than enough. It won't get you on the plane but it will get you there eventually!

Bugger it I'll buy paddles
5.4s paddle quite nicely off the front, a good technique if trying to talk to and follow wayfarers round in very little/nae wind
