How far out to sea???  One thing they probably didn't need a lot of deck space to land into the wind.

Nine days out is quite a distance. AC probably knows how far these biplanes were able to fly... if they were anything like the scale models my husband used to build they were pretty fuel efficient as they had so much lift...
