Boatshow this Weekend

Me and her indoors are off to Southampton with our Caravan and Sib for a long weekend. We are going to have a poodle up the Hamble or mess about in Southampton water in our Honwave and go to the Show one day.


If others are going or have already been let us all know what you have bought. Can't go to a big show like this and buy nowt

That's why I don't go unless there is something I definitely need. Prefer to spend the time on the water

Back now after a very nice 3 days in Hampshire with the Caravan and little Honwave T38.

At the Show we bought a Itiwit 2 Man Kayak to go with the 3 man we have.
2 Crew Saver Bags
A lovely little Standard Horizon HX40E for use on the Jetski
Some fender lines

and that was the lot. Looked very hard at the 4.5 m Spearfish and very nearly bought it but resisted.

All in all a very good show this year as most years

Looking at most of the Ribs I thought the best value for money at the smaller end was the Excel range

I don’t think I saw the excel range , what do you think of the Briggs ? I really liked the look of the 450 falcon , it looked well put together and the step in the end of the tube is a good idea .
