Journey to Hayling Island in a SIB?

Hi guys! I'm thinking of going down to Hayling Island for a holiday in March/April and thinking of taking the SIB. I was going to take the boat out from Littlehampton Harbour to Hayling Island. Obviously I'd have a handheld VHF, flares etc. Is there anywhere on this journey that I'd have to avoid? I know Selsey Bill can be rough. The SIB is 4.5 metres with a 30HP Yamaha 2 stroke, I would probably have 3 on board including myself.

So is this a good and safe journey or should I just trailer the SIB there?

It's a bit of a slog, although I suppose you could do it given a good enough forecast but don't underestimate Selsey Bill.

I'd trailer it.
