    hey this may sound silly but i want to know in case any of you
    have done the mission analysis .... for the sea route in
    which your boat is designed to operate.
    where do you get necessary info like refuelling stations, varying depths , wave height .... along the route?
    Thanx

    Umm it does sound a little silly but giving the benefit of the doubt;

    Marine charts or chart software gives you the depths

    Software such as "Visual passage planner" now has all the statistics for wave height wind direction and strength gathered over the years. It will optimise your route based on statistical data and give a rough enough estimate to enable you to plan your passage.

    Jimmy cornells website noonsite.com has the best up to date info on destinations including services available, fees, and entry/exit requirements.

    Please tell us what you have in mind.

    Cheers
