I'm back in net, so I can reply for all posts
To Keith Hart - I still counting on You, as on others on that forum! If You can't go for any reason (lack of time; wife etc
) I still counting on Your advice!
Brian - fuel consumption - I prognose, that fuel consumption will be from 1,2-1,5 ltr/Nm on the beginning to 0,5 ltr/Nm at the end. The difference is becouse of weight of the rib on the beginnig and at the end. Exact range is difficult to say before sea trials, but I think It will be 1200 Nm - 1400 Nm.
I'm taking 1 ton of fuel (which is approx 1100 ltr) in 2 tanks under deck and the rest on deck, lasched with ropes.
I'll have to enter to Port Williams to get permission to go through Chilean Channels, which is in fact obligatory (as I'm informed). On that ocassion I'll refuel.
As for sponsors - I'll let know later, after puting a boat to the water
Parker helped me a lot (thanks for Andre and His brother Philip!), and becouse of that I'd been able to put my order now. Andre may not call it as sponsorship, but I feel that without His help all things can't get rolling
Aging Youth, and all others - THANK YOU for Your support
