Welcome to the forum. Are you sure about petrol being available along the route? How many days do you think the trip will take?

As mentioned above, 25-30 hours of sailing.
We will useba ATL bladdertank for the extra fuel(600L) + the 360 L in the built in tank.
That should, I believe, be enoughl

That is a lot of extra weight to carry. Have you tried the boat with that weight on it so you know how it will affect the handling? How are the weather forecasts for that area as you will be wanting as smooth a passage as possible.

The wight of extra fuel, equipment and people is less than 50% of max load.
That should not be a problem.

In regards to the weather, we only need a two day forecast with "flat water" in the south china sea. We will prepare in due time and await a good weather "window"
Should not be a problem.

That is quite some trek you have planned. I don't think I would have the stamina for something like that nowadays.

I wish you the best of luck.
