I went to RIBex two, or was it three years ago. I thought it was OK, but nothing special. I agree with most people here who seam to want to see more land-based stuff (we all like buying gagets). It was good to see all RIBs in one place but the boatshow is more productive for buying goodies.

I'll go to RIBex (if it happens this year) in Cowes and i'll go in my boat, most probably from Portsmouth. If gingercoastie wants to join me then it sounds like the begining of a cruise. Either way for me it'll make the day more worthwhile driving to the south coast. The'll still be enough time to see everything and buy anything i'm after.

A 2nd or 3rd show makes no odds to me, as 'joe punter' unless, of course, as Mr coastie suggests we end up with 3 crap shows. Chances are we'll end up with 3 OK shows, and i'll more-than-likely goto at least 2 of 'em. If i were only to go to 1 show it would be RIBex because i've been before and i know what to expect.

Yes - be positive, it's all an excuse to get out for the day, talk about RIBs, meet a few more like-minded people and have a few drinks. Life's great sometimes!
