Still I'd love to see if the stuff about jet drives being no good in rough seas are true, a jet rib in my home port would be ideal to get in and out near low tide.

While your picking up Bogi, would it be too much out of the way to skirt around Greenland, down Hudson Bay, up the Nelson River, Lake Winnipeg & the Red River into Winnipeg?

It's amazing what you can fit in a four metre. This one has an 8.3 litre lump running on methanol and pushing out over 1000hp through a jet. No need to go to OZ either. This was Southport in 2003.

No problem with me I am up for this, could meet some relatives in Gimli while you pop on board............................. no problem there are few yards to pubs from the harbour here in Reykjavik and I am sure similar in Greenland while refueling and same in Canada................
