RIB Cruise from Poland to Littlehampton

My new rib is more or less complete and it is an all black Parker 650 Diesel. the engine is the Cummins QSD 2.0 170HP with Bravo 1 drive - full DTS with the Smartcraft vessel Viewer.
Next week with Steve Green and Mike C we are off to Szczecin Poland to bring the rib by sea to the UK. The Rib is known as "Black Magic" I will have AIS on board so some of you may want to track our route. we will have a few days in the Szczecin waters to clock up the first 15/20 hours so prior to departure the first service can be done. Some of you may recall that in 2008 I did a similar trip on a 9 mtr Parker rib. This time we are much better prepared and all possible fuel places have been located and the same goes for hotel accomodation.

we will take the route via the Kiel canal and head for the nice island of Helgoland. then down the coast to Calais where we shall advise HM Coast Guards of our crossing. I do not want a repeat of the boarding in Littlehampton when we brought Nauti Bouy over from Calais
