Maybe reasonable to link up with the Sail Maluku rally in September to smooth the Indonesian experience. Have a recent thread on CF.

Re: Darwin to Nongsa Pt (Indonesia)

I guess you know that diesel in Indon is total crap. get 300l turtle bags and try to run nonstop from Darwin. I had a cray boat delivery from Freemantle to Sing last year. Vessel capacity 3,000l but we took 4,000 on deck. Topped up in Christmas and ran non-stop from there to Raff marina without taking a drop of the indo ****.
Get one more crew and do one man two hour watches.

What is your fuel burn? Cut back 200rpm and stretch the fuel.

Indon charts and Navionics, raymarine etc all slightly off so don't cut any corners. I'd suggest you look at Darwin-Bali- Banka Strait (better nav aids)-then leave Lingga to port and then Bintan Strait (try to do that in daylight)- turn left into Nongsa (don't cut the corner, go in slow and easy, there's a rock).

In what way, just dirty?
I figured as it seems most of it will be coming from hand cranked 44 gallon drums (as per numerous blogs) that running through a F15c Mr Funnel Fuel Filter into the main tanks would be a given. From there it gets pumped through a pair of (2 for each motor)) 500fg equivalent filters to the 150litre day tanks before gravity feeding back to the engine.

I would like to think 1 L/nm approx @ 8knots approx doing around 1650rpm (50hp).
1900litres of permanent tankage and possibility of an additional 400litres of blue plastic drums on deck

Got all of that, thanks.

Thanks
I did join, well I thought I did, Idid the email address and password thing but no result.
Never got your PM, but thanks for those links.

Several knots of current seemed to be a major issue for you which may mean that route via Ashmore is out. I'll have to run some guestimate numbers on extra distance with less current vs shorter distance with.

Hi ricardo, if you read through the thread you would see that
1) The boat is still being built
2) It is a powered boat, so no sail trimming required

She is also 50ft long and 24ft wide, so I don't think your dinghy sailing experience will be of any help.

When are you planning on leaving?
When I am ready
