Now THEY are pretty 'bullet proof'!and should take a cross channell in it's stride. Planning a crossing myself later in the year,and have no reservations about doing it in my 5M+ Ribcraft....WITH suitable weather.Why would anyone not ere on the side of caution,especialy on a''PLEASURE CRUISE'' with members of the family?
