You can normally park on the side of the road 5 minutes from Excel and walk in.

If your taking pictures will you be able to get some of the new avon and the ribcraft stand, we can't make it down this year and these to stands are of greatest interest.

Thanks Freddie

Will do. I was actually at Ribcraft between Christmas and New Year and saw the show boats all wrapped up and ready to go.

Went to day
Waste of time , if its ribs you want then go to Ribex
as for the chandelry i Found Marine Super Store cheeper,
long journey with people wandering aimlesly.
To me there is no theme to the show, Southampton is on the water.
Ribex is on water, i also agree with the other thread that said the staff on most of the stands did not have any instrest in what they where doing.
Its not cheep 14 x 2 = 28 plus car park 9 food two sandwich 2 coffee = 15 plus petrol etc. min cost 70

I had a great time.
- browsing the chandlers & handling items helps the decision buying process even if you then go and get it off the web - especially the difference betweeen a 175 drysuit and a 269 one.
- Garmin stand had new kit and helpfull staff
- Sealegs RIB was great, but in the wrong place with the inland waterways stuff. What a fun toy that'd be.
- Guinness stand - no explanation needed
- loads of affordable dinghies, dayboats, hardboats (awesome V8 wakeboarding boats), jetbikes - i want one of everything!
Bit disappointed that there wasn't a dedicated watersports area (unless I missed it), but the sail/wakeboard/diving stands were there if you hunted a bit.
Enjoy the atmosphere with a load of like minded people.

2x FREE - Show Tickets!

Hi all -

I know it's friday afternoon and maybe a little late in the day, but i have 2x show tickets for the first available person who would like to pick them up!

I am in Gosport, so it will need to be someone who is local or passing on their way there.

Please reply to this message and leave your mobile no. That way should be the fairest and no need for lots of others to be disappointed if you called me - ok.

I'll try and check the forum every couple of hours for any requests.

Regards - John.
