With all my heart I wish to you VERY BRAVE lads good luck and calm seas.
My only concern is that the boat does not have a cover in the bow. Are you planning in fitting one?? It will protect the boat and you if a wave brakes on it.
Believe me I have crossed the Atlantic a few times sometime agao on Panamax size (DWT 60000) bulk carriers and the waves are PRETTY BIG!!
Please consider that thought.
Good luck and all the best!!

fuel burn and all up weight for water jet?

Good luck to all of you.

When you get time can you give the nm of each leg, and your expected fuel burn and predicted top speed with a water jet.

Have you got any boat following you if you run into trouble.

Good luck I will be watching with interest.
