I would like to do this and have been starting to look for / think about the boat to do it in. Something 5.5-6.5m outboard powered in keeping with the sprit of the challenge I think.

I was / am working to a rough budget of 5000 (shared between two) along similar lines to the calcs above for the actual trip, plus a considerable amount more to source & rig up the boat of course!!

gtb what's your t's & c's of land support ? I rather fancy a support team !!

t's & c's ?! minimal. I imagine keeping in regular touch with the crew, driving between rendezvous, camping/B&B in various places, carrying whatever make sense in the back of the MPV, and being a general 'gopher' to help folks get around safely and successfully. Just don't expect any help fixing the hydraulics or remapping the engine etc

If your idea of land support is a well equipped mobile marine mechanic then I'm not your man.
