No problem Jonathan,

Im very pleased with my BWM. only had it a few months (bought second hand) but aside from a few teething problems it has been great.

its a little bit wet in bigger seas but i would expct that from any 5 meter boat. im trying to get some history on her but its proving a little difficult. i know she was built circa 1995 but thats about it!

i see yours is a biggen! do you have any pictures?

go to my info sheet and click on "threads started by EUPA" - see "my rib" . Photo a bit small but you should be OK. Nice little problem we had.....
BWM was run by Paul Lemmer. He seems to turn up now and again. The rib is sitting at home at the moment and am doing "her" up.

E3000 would buy a lot of petrol, my atlas suggests its about 600 miles by sea, how big are your fuel tanks, (says I, sitting comfortably in my arm chair)

Hasn't someone just done this trip in reverse with a 7.5m valiant ?

My thoughts exactly... Eupa - you have a big cabin rib... this would be a great adventure... (although I admit there are a few 'dodgy' ports en route)

thanks fellas but...... I WANT TO LIVE A BIT LONGER

2*60 gallons - about 350 miles worth. Yes thats the problem a few dodgy ports to say the least. I would have to take my wife with me , and could use her as collateral if we were hijacked. She is a blond and the Arabs love blonds.
But she is also a hot "belge" and would'nt last more than 24 hours in a harem.
as she does'nt take to being told what to do. But I have updated my Mapsource files for the Garmin 2010c.... just in case..

Eupa, we have exactly the same problems with girls in southern England, what you need is a nice Lancashire lass who knows her place is in the kitchen.

Ha - Howard. Fancy meeting you in here. Thanks for the ref...
Stumbled in here from a general surf.
Best way to canaries is RoRo to Las Palmas. Not wonderfully regular buit cheaper than in a box and you don't need to deflate or dismantle - should be on a trailer though.
Yes, we at Peters and May can do this no problems!

Just seen this Pete, you naughty boy! Actually, I've found that quite the opposite works for me - I got myself a nice Lancashire lad who knows his place is out at work! Not that I'm suggesting Eupa needs a Lancashire lad, mind you...

Edit: although if he does fancy one, that's fine too, as long as it's not MY Lancashire lad that he fancies!
