We will soon be setting off on our annual pilgrimage to France, the boat will be loaded with:-
180l of fuel
6 berth frame tent
Bike
Bbq
Chairs
Tables
Gas bottle
Jerry cans (empty)
+ all the boat gear, anchor, ropes, fenders, fishing rods etc.
On a "normal" trip, the boat leaves home in a ready to launch state, get all the farting about done at home instead of on the slip (you know who you are&#128527. Roll up to the slip, straps off & in. Same for the recovery, do the prep whilst you're hanging off shore waiting for the clueless numpty to reverse his trailer (he can't btw) & then bugger about on the slip sorting his gear out, perfectly oblivious that there's a queue waiting to get out😡

By 'eck! I feel better now👍

My word Pikey Dave - you have everything in there. But then you have a pretty solid hull - not sure the Zodiac is built to quite the same standard. and I do need to bring a bike over but I am thinking I may leave that for another trip when I am going over without the boat. But good thinking on the tent and perhaps sleeping bags etc, if I can find a way to ensure they wont stink of fuel when they are in close to the fuel tank for the journey. I will also have a hunt around for some small thin foam mats as they will work a treat to cushion everything and as someone suggested could allow me to leave the anchor where it is. Thanks again J

Cheap dry bags or plastic drum with a sealing lid if you can get hold of a couple

I trailer fully loaded and ready to launch.

I don't want to hijack this thread but I'll also be taking the rib over to Ireland next month on the ferry. Is there anything you need to do other than booking as normal? I travel a lot on the Cairnryan-Larne route (with my car only) and last time I asked a purser about taking my rib with fuel tanks and he said to phone in advance and they would put the car&trailer outside? Although I asked the same question to security and they said absolutely no way can I carry ANY fuel tanks at all, though I'm pretty sure I asked a clueless one - they are usually very good but 1% of the time you meet a jobsworth and I think this was one of them.

Whats the general policy from those who take their ribs on ferrys? I'll probably definitely have fuel in the tanks.

The movement on the road and ferry will be less than on a bouncy day at sea. So if it's gear that goes on when afloat it should be fine stowed as per your boating.

Wouldn't put flares in my car. Possibly irrational as plenty boats have in cabin and don't hear of many spontaneously combusting.
