As the voyage will need to be planned under power first step will need to be knowing your fuel
range (maximum and
). and I wouldn't rely on simply what has been claimed (on usage and tankange).
Then I would look at a map (charts are for later
) and see what your broad options are in legs, given your prudent range. After that is a matter of refining things down.
I would expect your trip to be heavily weather
dependent so would want my stops to be in places I could wait out adverse weather
. as well as re-fuel
3 miles offshore
? I don't see coastal as overall "safer", your route
will dictate how far off land you are, no sense hugging the coast to the closest point but also no sense to heading 50 miles out before heading towards your destination
Anyway, welcome aboard CF
I am sure a few here will be interested in your engine installation
, there are a few threads around on similar.
