OK, lets make a plan
I have all the time in the world as long as my heart is beating, would be fun in a pair..and safer. I have courtesy lights and an orange plotter which might help
I am always in the South of France for all of August every year, so any days apart from that lets do it. The furthest I have been is 8,000 miles in a landing craft down through the South Atlantic, so 5,000 hugging a coast should be a piece of cake
P.S. I have only just recently got mine (4mtr Searider) and due to the weather had limited goes in it, I have not really been in a small boat apart from my other tender which is a Zodiac 320 with a 9.8 Tohatsu, I'm used to the luxury and amenities of a larger motor cruiser. I'm heading from Portsmouth to Bembridge this weekend so I will see how that goes, I guess it would be similar.
