When Istarted using my SIB I was suprised that a trip out with loads of drifts over wrecks only cost 3.50ish a day!

I have now bought a new rig, an Avon Sport 460 with a 25hp engine. I was wondering if you could give me an rough idea of the range of this rig, given all the conditions above?
I know it depends on fuel, but am mainly wondering how far out I could venture in good weather?
Many thanks to all who have replied,
Geoff

Tide/wind state dependant obviously, but I wouldn't worry about going 4 miles out on a good day in a sib that size.

Thanks Nos4r2, that sounds great, and brings a lot more wrecks within my range! I will have to look at a fixed radio soon I think.
Cheers,
Geoff
