Rib-X were showcasing some more of their characteristically styled superyacht tenders, and Cobra had a stand on the main run down to the marine too, but I got distracted by Nick Gilley of Swipes trying to sell me some of his can holders and I didn't actually look at the boats, sorry!

Zodiac were there, but didn't seem to be taking it very seriously. Maybe the French just don't see Southampton as important? They had quite a few boats on show, but they looked as it they had just been dropped off in a car park. Which they had, I suppose! They did have an Aerotec there though

On my way out of the show I noticed a RIB lurking in the LNC Outdoor Equipment marquee in the Arena just by the entrance. It was an Atlanta, a new name to me, apparently made in the UK. They don't seem to have a web site - has anyone else heard of them?

Foldable RIBs and Nestaway boats were both exhibiting the Russian made Winboat folding RIBs. Similar to the old Tinker foldaway RIB that Henshaws used to make, but these range all the way up to 4.6 meters.

If you're going to the show this week, have a look the superspout. It's a very clever non spill attachment for a regular 5l fuel can or jerrycan and makes pouring fuel much more controlled. It has no moving parts, but auto shuts off like a petrol pump to avoid spills. I thought it was quite cool

And finally, if the excessive prices and long queues at the burger bars are too much to take, then head down to the Rentokill stand where they've got bugs you can snack on. Salt and vinegar crickets anyone? Or Mexican spice mealworms perhaps?

I'm well impressed with the futuristic console on the Ribeye it brings ribs into the 21st century which is well over due in my opinion

Nick Gilley is awesome, he's given us a black bottle/can holder for the RIB 4 Macmillan

Remember I said about the problems with our water bottles ending up in the transom going round Britain, well I wish I had one of these for that trip. They really seem to work too

I don't really go for gadgets but this beats drilling a cup holder in your console any day, cheap too

Thanks for the mention JK They really like the forum and are well impressed with the Macrib project

They have known about us from when we did the Round Isle of Wight 4 Macmillan in 2013 In fact, loads of people know about what we have been up to here at the show
