As someone who was surrounded by sharks at SBS, I have certainly learned a lesson

I am afraid I certainly have to agree with you there Pete (with the screwdriver)

Remember, it is only a bargain if you need it, and it is what it is made out to be.

How about some guidelines for people thinking of buying a boat at the show, e.g. Shark repellant (Manos has some)

Pete

Yeah, I reckon the prize is that they get to keep the bits

Pete (with the screwdriver) is after nav lights and the outdrive leg (or was it the cooker?)

I was thinking of trying to go for the engine, but at 4.3ltr 210hp, that's seroiusly de-tuned - is it worth bothering?

Latest update from LBS 2003

quote :-

Not for Public Circulation

"This years boat show will be the most secure yet. There have been attempts in the past to illegaly acquire (steal) articles from boats, this year we are using the latest security techniques available to prevent this. Techniques will include full body searches and examinations of all body orifices, these will be aimed at known 'Ribnet members'. All persons searched and found in possession of 'articles for going equipped to steal or cause criminal damage' e.g. chainsaws, screwdrivers (flat and cross), heavy engine lifting gear, sawdust, cordless drills (fully charged with extra batteries) will have these confiscated. Certain stands are believed to be a target due to the popularity of their smart boats, one in particluar is Glastron. Secret hidden cameras will be operating in the cuddy, portaloo, cooker gas ring, fridge (coolbox), engine bay and propeller screw. These security measure will ensure a secure show for all"

End quote

Thought this may be of interest to some members.

Pete
