Yep and the fella with the fancy blenders, he's there

There are a whole bunch of brassy looking trout in black leggings and Guinness tee shirts. Don't go looking at those too closely, or you'll cop that hobnailer again.

Absolutely stunning inside, the helm position was fantastic, well everything was fantastic. The chap allowing us on board - with us dripping wet all over the cabin - was happy to talk and very informative.

@ 4 million, it was either that, the Sunseeker or the one with the interior 'designed' by some lady designer. The later being the best use of space and below deck natural light. Although the interior craftsmanship of the ship, was a delight to see,



Pulled pork (more like squashed pork with no taste) roll and chips for lunch. Ended up admiring the outdoor shingle covered oval sheds - with seating, tv and fridge and infer red heater hanging overhead. Perfect for a wet summer BBQ. Great day out

Never found the fit & finish on Sunseeker very good at all reckon there well overrated imo

Went today and recon we got the best of the weather at the show so far. Layout not changed a great deal, but some key stands have changed. i looked and looked but could not find the Macrib anywhere
A close look and some interesting stuff. I think I read somewhere that Evinrude were not at the show, Mmmm.....
Quite a few G2 were scattered around various stands. Definitely a marmite look to them. To be honest, I am not at all sure myself.
Came across a couple of Ribquest boats on the water, and got to say I am impressed. Good finish, with the locker of this console being a particular high point, it does not finish at deck level, but goes right down into the bilges, oo er!
Much to my wife's amusement, and thanks to the kind bloke on the Ribquest stand, I spent quite a few minutes bouncing up and down on the Scot Seats. I tried them a few years ago and frankly did not find them very comfortable. Now either my bum has been re-modelled, or the Scot Seat seat pan has 'cos now they seem very comfortable. Really quite impressed.
Apparently the RNLI have taken delivery of some......
Anyone know of any cheap ones going anywhere

Also came across these trailers, that seem to have made their way over from France. Cop a load of those rollers!
If you look closely you can see the Stainless Steel graphic, but you might also note the GALVANISED axles. Who said SS and galv do not go well together?
They had all mod cons, including a power winch, and other goodies. But, of course there is a down side, ouch.
There seemed a lot of non boaty stuff around, I could have filled my garden many times over with all the garden furniture that was on display. There seemed to be a lot of deals on LJs, and some clothing slightly reduced, but not fantastically so.
Nice to meet up with Brian by the XS demonstrators, keep at it mate
I enjoyed the day, of course a lot of that was down to the weather.
