    Cairns to Cape Bedford by boat

    Hi all, looking to leave on Sunday from Cairns and heading to Cape Bedford by boat. Anyone done this trip? Wondering how long it takes of course depending on weather. In a 7 mtr plate boat, 350 of fuel, 200 suzuki. Also what is minimum tide to get in and out of Elim beach?? I know it is dry on low most of the time, just dont want to leave boat out in middle of BF nowhere.

    Cheers

    Had cracking weather. bit lumpy on way up from bloomfield but still averaged 20kn. Took 6 hours with 2 half hour breaks. 170ltrs used for 180 km travelled. Need minimum 2.2 mtrs for beach access at Elim beach. Trip back was exceptional weather, followed shelf all way down, loaded up on some awesome fish. YES a trip to redo , would be very weather dependant though.
