Yeh how does that work !

How do I book an appointment on a boat at a show.

And if I was that interested I would personally like a view somewhere a lot quieter than a boat show.

Sunseeker treated us exceptionally well at Southampton a few years ago. Considering they had the most expensive boat there they had a right to be snobbish if anyone has but they weren't.

I have always found that the more money someone has the more down to Earth they are. It's the pretentious gits pretending to be something they aren't that really annoys me.

The right to be snobbish? No they haven't.

But personally I wish it was on the mainland. Then I wouldn't have to pay for a couple of ferry fares.

I never pay to go to shows - just a few phone calls and the tickets usually appear as if by magic!!!
