Looks like I might not be coming in my own RIB but all being well will be annoying Neil M along the way on his RIB.

Biggest problem is not enough fuel storage, I've only got two 25L tanks.

OK there is a chance I could get to the Anglesey trip but

1. What is the latest I can let you know ?

2. how far is the trip ?

3. What time is kick off ?

This would be my maiden voyage ! is it ambitious or just a good introduction ?

I would PM GED, but I reckon it should not be a problem.

Is it ambitious, no - not with the support you will have around you on the day
Is it a good introduction, yes - see above

I am bringing a 25l tank which will be empty both ways (it will be used to get a tank or two of fuel to top off the main tank in IOM)
You can certainly fill and use both ways if you want as long as I can get it on the island to refill my main tank?

Likewise - carrying empty tank there and back and only using for a tank or two in Douglas. You're welcome to carry it if it helps as long as I can use it in Douglas.

Adam.

More than happy to help here as well, if you want to take your own RIB. I've got a 40 litre main tank and a 25 litre I'm jus about to attach as a reserve/provide enough to get across. I'm also taking another 80 litres in 4 20 litre jerry cans that will all be full on the way over.

More than happy to lend you a full one for the trip across, then all you will need to do is fill 3 of them, which I will have emptied into my two tanks, for the trip back

What's all this carrying empty cans?
If you're going to carry a can, carry a full one. You or someone else may need it before you get to the petrol filling station.

Because it weighs 25kg full and I don't feel it needs to he hauled right across the Irish Sea?
If fuel was available on the quay I wouldn't bother as I have more than enough built in for the trip across and most probably for the way back too, The extra 25l fill on IOM is just insurance in case of any extra mileage etc on the day.
It is only coming to allow easy transfer from the fuel station cos my tanks are built in!
I don't mind loaning it to JSP if he needs it, then it will be full each way

Wow lads! Never expected all the kind offers!
BTW, I could do with a 21 year old blonde girl to hold things on the way over.

Bull Bay - I.O.M (6 June)

Just a bit of an update to anyone from angelsey who may be interested in the IOM trip, but can't travel to conway.
A few of us are assembling at Bull Bay at 08.30 on sat 6 june, and aim to set off at 09.30. This will put us about 1hr to 1 1/2hrs ahead of the main group, but we are looking to maintain a nice relaxed pace, and may allow ourselves to drift eastwards abit (wind permitting), so as not to be too far away from the main bunch.
We are looking to depart Douglas about 14.30 - 15.00hrs, but will be guided by the main group.

Boats departing Bull Bay so far are;

Avon Searider 5.4 (Sun-Dry)
Kestrel 5.5 (Echo 1)
Delta 5.5 (?)

Hi to the lads in the Delta. Anyone else wishing to go from Bull Bay, if you can't make Conway, is more than welcome.
We aren't really part of GEDs & DMs propper group, but are very grateful to them to allow us to travel in nearby company to them, (thankyou).
