Been there, done that. Actually its quicker to pull the clevis pins. Saves having a load of sharp wire ends flying around.
Down our end of the Solent, its called a Chineese Jybe.

Anything sounds better when you are up to your neck in water.

Yeah I enjoyed the show.. spent 8 hours wandering around.. There were three Ribcrafts out on the water along with the Ribcraft stand, Valiant had a stand, Xs ribs were there, Ribeye, Avon/Zodiac were also there, and a couple of others. In fact I saw so many boats of all kinds. One place I didnt look was at the big Sunseeker gin palaces, they seem too big to me, you probably dont feel like you are on the water when driving one of those.

Did anyone else see the inflating mooring stand which allows your boat to stand out of the water on your mooring (dont know what its called offically). It cost 6,900 pounds, and they had a guy there, next to Rib area, demonstrating how it works. I have seen one down at Lymington Marina. Great idea, saves having to antifoul your boat, but you'll still no doubt need to wash your boat down after every

i think they are called aqua hoists. They are very popular in torquay with a certain type of dinghy as it has to be stored out of the water but is too big to haul in an out every time. I cant remeber what boat it is tho. edit: Found out its a melges24.

When we saw it at the boat show it had a mighty big tornado on it!!

You would be suprised how much even a 95' Sunseeker moves around when you are on the Flybridge!!!

The 108 is awesome though - an 80 ton boat at 45kts will bash most waves out of the way - don't think all the cut glass and bone china would fare too well though......
