March 2020 Abrolhos Trip

 Hi Fishers,

planning a late March trip from Fremantle to the Abrolhos Islands in a 42' Randall with some mates, leaving ( subject to weather) 23rd and need to be back no later than the 2nd April due to interstate mates flights.

the boat isn't a speedboat by any means, cruising is about 12kn, burins around 70 lt an our, got 1200lt capacity, is there anyone I can prearrange topping up diesel on any of the islands, obviously I'm going to need to refuel along the way as well but the answer to my question might determine heading out to the islands from Jurien Bay or Geraldton.

any suggestions of places to see, checkout ect would be great, never been there before so any areas to fish ect if yoire happy to share would be happily received. 
same goes if anyone else is planning a trip for the same time, be great to hook up with another boat.

im also planning on towing my 4.5m runnabout to use for trolling ect and generally running around

 Top up at dongara would be

 Top up at dongara would be more direct than gero if you are worried about range. 
That's a pretty tight timeline if the weather turns bad. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?
