Cape Horn On A Rib

I'd like to announce oficially, that I just ordered a RIB for my new project - Rounding the CAPE HORN on a RIB. I choose the 6,3 m diesel powered open deck PARKER. The boat will be ready at the end of november. I'd like to start from Punta Arenas, go to Atlantic, round Cape Horn, then to Chilean Channels and through Magellan Strait back to Punta Arenas. All togrther approx. 1200 Nm. Dates: start in february 2004. I'm still collecting money from sponsors , but things looking not bad!
Crew: 2 persons.
The pictures of the Parker 630 are on www.parkerribs.com
There are not pictures with My boat, but there will be as soon, as I manage to make them.
Any comments?
Sugestions?
Advices?
Feel free to write to me I can be late with answers, as I have not internet at home, so please, be patient!

PS. Thank You, Andre!

On a second RIB? No problem! Will be more fun to go on two boats! I'll keep a message in my memory, as my co-pilot is not 100% decided yet
Anyway - Thanks!

OK Arek, so now it is official. perhaps JK will make a special thread for your adventure just like the one for the Jolly Sailor and Bears

By the way I am still waiting to hear from Thewavehumper about the RibNet pennants. I will post it to you to Warszawa if one can be arranged.
Keep us posted about your planning ect, ect cos I am sure that many of us will be interested to read about it specially as winter is coming and not many will be out ribbing Dec/Feb

I will! Especially, becose I'll be ribbing on Baltic in December - Sea trials before sending a boat to Punta Arenas by ship.
In next weekend I'm going to the sea on a 6,3 Parker with outbord 115 HP Mercury. Have to get wet a little With me will go my co-pilot, Michal Kowalski. A RIB will be rented (FOR FREE! ) from Parker Poland.

Thank You Philip!

Good for you and have a good time. How far are you going to take the rib out or is it just in the Bay of Gdansk and around Hel.

Powodzenia
Andre

Please keep us informed as to your progress Arek.
What special problems do you anticipate? Weather, fuel, food, remoteness??
And is this your approximate routing?

Heaps good luck anyway.

Brian! Had You seen my Sponsor Set?! Or have You been there? A little more to the South and that will be exactly the route, what I'll go.
Most problems I'll have with fast changing weather. The second thing is of course fuel. Remotness and food is not a big problem as I used to such remote places and lack or bad food.
