Well from the other side of the fence..............
This is the first year we have taken a stand at the show.
I have been a great supporter fo the show for many years with my other hat on.
Whilst there were not hundreds of people there today for us it was great.
All those I spoke to today were serious buyers.
There is only one retailer here and that is Dave from Boat Care.
The black jackets are the Kru Sport from Ocean Safety.
I have had one of these for a year or so and it a great bit of kit.
Especially if your running a trip business.
Easy to put on and adjust.
The fantastic value hand held Bruce mentioned is our HX 270
And yes great valule for money!!
I have to say not sure were you were looking Bruse, with all due respect, but Ribcraft, I know for a fact, have been flat out taking potential buyers for sea trails.
I also saw the Balistic team in and out all day as were a few others.
Maybe you were trying the wrong boats
Friday is never the best day for the show and the weekend tends to be the busiest days by far.
I am sorry you had a bad day out but hope it don't out you off totally.
On a lighter side the power went out in Cowes whilst we were about to go for dinner so 6 of us decided to blat across to Southampton for a meal., trip back was, what can only be best described as "interesting"!
And I have learnt that Adrenaline is really brown!!
Here is looking forward to a good weekend in "Cow" on the "Island of the White" dont ask its a long story!!!
All the best
