Ask him where you can get an END of a BELL, I'm sure he is an expert in that department

What sort of holder are you thinking of? Something gimbal mounted? I'd think on a rib driven in rough water you'll struggle to get no spills. How about just using bike bottles and cages?

Depends what you're comfortable with.
On shorter trips I go for about twice what I expect to burn but never less than 60ltrs.
Policy doesn't work for longer trips (tank's to small, 135 litres) so generally aim for the standard 30% spare. I've never came back with less than 30 litres and that's probably about as far as I'd push my luck
Burn calculations based on 1 litre/ kn mile but I know the boat consistently does marginally better than that so that gives me a bit of wriggle room.
