Sw Boat Jumble

Went to the boat jumble today at Margam park... not impressed at all this year... Went with a big shopping list and bought just one item (lifejacket refill cylinder) as we had seen everything else cheaper that we wanted either online or in local shops! best bit though was one bloke sell a set of navigation lights used and battered 10 more than the stall next door which were brand new and still in the packet!!!

What are the other boat jumbles like around the country? Heard that the malvern one was good this year. Has the day of the boat jumbel gone as Internet sales take over?

Glad I didn't go now. It is the same at Land Rover jumbles and on Ebay itself - often the new stuff is cheaper than S/h!!!

Netley one wasn't too hot from a trade point of view. Unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to look round and see what was there as I was on my own. Several stalls around me commented they'd not had the best day ever.
