Have used Kildare for some parts and they do seem helpful. Needed some flares and he actually rang me on Friday morning to tell me they'd had their delivery so I'll be popping in next week to pickup a pack.

The exhibitors are limited at London Boat Show. My advice would be to head for Dusseldorf in February where there is alot more to see and just as easy to get to. The only down side I can see is that the beer often comes with a thick foam head and the choice of sausages too much......

Just as an update to this thread, word on the street is the LBS continues to decline in quality. Most people are saying it's not worth it. I have heard the Beale Park boat show is much better and it's in the summer so more of a good day out.

Beale Park is a small event with the organisers having loads of small businesses from the boating world covering, canoes, dinghys,rowing boats, canal boats and even radio control boats . Specialist skills linked to boat building are usually there. This does not compare to a large show but is a good day out

Was speaking to the guys at Copper Coat (which I will be using this year) and whilst they had a good show, the foot fall through the show was down again by about 10%.
