Very much so, but I'm more a fan of Danny Kaye, where as you obviously prefer Hans Christian Andersen. Mind you, it is only a story, so we could also go for The King's New Turban (Turkey) or The Invisible Silk Robe (Sri Lanka).

I went along last night after work (mainly to grab a Guiness )

It was a bit like going on holiday in Morocco if you stoppped or made eye contact with any of the people on the stands you were done for.

What was good this year is that the Fairline and Sunseeker stands were a lot more open to the great unwashed and I had a look round a couple of those behemouths. Perhaps they are now looking at SubPrime in boat ownership terms.
