Lundy is a great dive location..the vis there is sometimes amazing! If you can work it in its definatley worth it.
Having said that...On a trip like you're planning with all the gear and Fuel you HAVE to take...a load of Diving gear inc Bottles ect being a real PITA,especially if (or when) it cuts up rough.

as we have land support we have three landrovers following us up, hopefully the kit will only be carried on that leg we are diving and if logistics lend its self,,, we would head back to port and load the dive kit back into the vehicles......
I found those ribs that did around Britain and the fuel info is good, as its the same engine as mine (well, mine is the 150 and theirs is a 175) as I never really usually use the boat with out gear, and it usually has 8 divers and 8 sets.
I have added 30% fuel contingency and worked on 1.5 ltrs per mile and £1.50 per litre.

I didn't realise you were supported to that extent Phill.
Sounds good

With the support vehicles you do have options along this bit.

Newquay - working harbour, good place to hide
Padstow - as others have said a good option.
Port Isaac, able to run and hide or overnight, it does dry but can be used with planning
Boscastle, 2 hours either side of HW is fine, maybe 2.5 if lucky. With agreement and booking an overnight may be possible, we have the harbour masters details. No fuel but if jerries and option garage isn't far away. A cracking dive location.
Bude - can be a bugger with surf but fine in anything but the biggest swell. Possible to lock in if a major storm or issues, again fuel is a 5 minute car ride away.
Clovelly, never use dit but with support could be a hide option or an overnight.
Appledore - good option but it does dry, about the same as Boscastle for slip access but with a good landy more options are available.

Only dive option really is Lundy once you've left Bude, we have loads from Padstow to Hartland but not a lot once you hit the channel.
