Did not bother going to the NEC CARAVAN AND boat SHOW this year as the boat bit is an after thought and a total waste of time and money.If you want to check out some boats head south i.e.Southampton or London , but they were at the end of the year so i'm afraid you've missed the boat for this season.

NEC 'Boat' Show

As I live next door to the NEC and get a freebie ticket I have been going for a few years, but for boats it gets worse every year (unless you're into those long canal things). Even if I get another free pass next year I won't be wasting the time.

I havenīt been to this show for some years now as it is mainly caravan show, I did attend for that piece for years and then the boating bit was a surplus to me.

I realise that living in Coventry you're a fair distance from the water, but I think you'll find you've missed out a couple of shows! Both in May - The Sports Boat and Rib show and Ribex
