OK, let's continue the story ...



I reallocated to new area today. I have shifted from Argolic Gulf to Lakonian Gulf.
(Area between Mili and Kiveri villages to Gythio)

3 hrs by car towing trailer with boat. I do suggest this road to avoid road thru mountains.

After I arrived went to Police, they ask me to go to Coast Guard, they have copied all papers like boat registration and insurance and send me to Port Police ... and they did not work ....

Finally famous here ROZAKIS travel agency helped me and made some calls ... :

1. Can not park car + trailer in port (the only one area where I can fit my set)
2. There is big slip - I can stay car here (finally left car and trailer on the street - not perfect ), boat
3. Nobody knows if I will pay anything for port - will see tomorrow

Our hotel (Gythion HOTEL) is good for their money (50 EUR for apartment for 5 persons including breakfast). Do not drink a lot when you stay here ... stairs are very dangerous:




Boat ramp (slide):


Crew awaiting for me near boat ramp (after we put boat into the Sea)


Finally we park boat into port in a front of nice tawerna





Maybe tomorrow we will go to Elafonisos island (100 km round trip)

It is OK. I'm not good person to spread opinion because it is my firs RIB.

Previously I have SIB HONVAVE T38 + HONDA BF20

This set OM540DL + EVINRUDE 115 HO has good performance.
40 knot max with 5 people, full tank 20l of spare petrol, a lot of bags (on calm Sea)

This is real Sea so we faced many different waves.
Trim, power and you can find optimum to force these conditions.

But sometimes boat is too small to go thru smoothly - or I'm still not to experience

Cave of DIROS







On Monday (trip to Elafonisos island) we faced strong wind. So we have tested boat in really hard condition. On last 5 km I was not able to be in plane (more than 1.5m waves against me). Every day we are more familiar with Sea conditions and better in jumping or cutting waves. Kids ask me to buy cabin RIB. They were wet in these conditions (but it is warm weather here)

Looks great

You cant beat the blue sky and warm, clear waters of the Med. Ive just come back from two weeks in Corsica. But I leave the boat there instead of towing it.

Sounds like you had some interesting weather, I had one week of mild seas and one week of flat sea.
