OK, perhpas it is because I live in Lymington. Saw the Scorp cabin last autumn.
Not convinced there is anything really new as in innovative in engines or electronics - please tell me where I am wrong.

Show is for anyone interested in all the above and ribs there to suit all pockets and levels of experience. There are lots of new features on the Solent compared to a couple of years ago new console on the 6.5 as there are on many of the other Ribs .
Sorry you felt disappointed by it .
Saw Zar last year, but not the big one with the bimini which I mentioned. Saw Caesar last year - ? SBS. Exige.... how really NEW??
New models - yes as in layout and styling, but new as in something genuinely innovative??
Not much in sub 6.5m I think.... actually sub 7, but perhaps I was wrong.
Yeah, Solent, interesting new console, and nice to see the new 9m. But is a redesigned console real innovation? Putting a bow thruster in is, and I mentioned it.
I do not deny people are making constant step wise improvements. But that is not radical innovation......
