Those verado's are thirsty beasts. One boat I helm with a single 300 Verado will empty a 150l tank in around an hour (admittedly it is a very enjoyable hour )

For you no doubt, Chris! It's that heavy dry sack of yours.
Does the enjoyable hour include picking up the refuelling bill
If not - nice one

On a more serous note - enjoy your first voyage. I'm sure you'll learn lots.
Post some pictures / notes of your experience.

You could be right about the dry bag lakelandterrier.

Luckily I don't get involved with the refuelling, I just empty the tanks.

Apparently a couple of boats have hit this underwater obstruction and it would be close to your likely route along the coast.

Have a great adventure and do a write up on here for us all.

That's why he's got help, asking for advice, plotted a course, and seems to be suitably cautious.
Enjoy the day!
I'd like to say " you lucky git! ", but you've probably worked for it and so deserve it.
Stay safe and doubtless you'll wear your cord!!
