    We are designing a Pilot of 20 m length, speed 20 knots, 10 seats capacity and propulsion endurance of 442 km (at 20 knots speed, 12 hours). Currently working on open sea waiting time the boat can endure, I would like your advise on average waiting time the boat of this category will face during inbound and outbound operations. Please advise and correct if I am wrong about the question itself.

    The average waiting time the boat will face depends on the location. As far as time it can endure, you are already giving a running time. Add the waiting time to it.
