refuelling

John G,

An astute member of the RIBnet forum noticed that Bradstone Challenger's fuel strategy cut things very close to the bone.

http://www.rib.net/forum/showthread....575#post102575

Is there a particular tactic that was designed to leverage the maximum range from the vessel?

No special tactics - we're working to close margins as are confident with our fuel consumption figures and shouldn't need to deviate from the planned route

Good one - I remember a quote along the lines of only having one chance due to cost & logistic issues.

Yeh, was true - but Neil (owner) was so impressed by the boats performance that he can't resist another crack at it...
