Greek rib show pictures

We took a trip down to Athens rib show in April, weren’t sure what to expect but it turned out to be a very interesting couple of days. We took plenty of pictures and thought it might be good for a bit of debate. The show had approximately twice as many ribs a Ribex, Most of the boats came from Italy of Greece, two definite types, hard core speed, and cruising.
The only UK produced boats I saw were Revenger our Shearwaters, and then Greek produced Scorpion. A few other names I recognised but a lot were new to me.
The first surprise was finish, all almost without exception had internal mouldings, no gel washed finish grit floors to be seen. Cabin ribs everywhere. First four pictures. cabin ribs.Ill add some more over the next couple of days
