The Kettle is always on at Lively lady's berth (D25). And if you get worn out with all the "Sales Talk", you can always have a rest in thre forward cabin!

Oooh that's going to hammer the plastic! They all know it's Boat Show week, of course, so rates are as high as they get all year . There's an hotel right outside Excel - The Sunborn Yacht Hotel which is handy. This year (I mean last year really!), I've been staying at The Royal Horseguards who do some terrific weekend deals - I don't know if they'll be doing deals boatshow week though. The downside is that their breakfasts are mediocre.

(Which Saturday are you going?)
