In a pleasant change from last year I was at the show yesterday in brilliant sunshine, and it was busy! I normally try to avoid the weekend crowds, but other commitments conspired against me this year, but it was good to see so many people there. There was definitely more of a buzz about the place too with everyone I spoke to sounding really positive.
It's definitely a good show for RIBs this year, with the overall quality being higher than I can ever remember. There were fewer identikit imports, and a lot of really smart looking well finished boats instead. Here's some of what I saw, in no particular order, but starting this year with the MacRIB of course. Not much to add her really, as I think it's all been said, but whisper, crew2 and lakelandterrier were taking every opportunity to tell the story at the show
