So after months and months of very painful work trying to get the MacRIB into the boat show, I had just had enough. I felt sick, what had we built???? I had tried everything...

It was after I completed round Britain that it all started to happen! First the boat show came up with a deal but then after talking to Boatylicious Marine about this fantastic opportunity of being the first RIB in the show right next to the biggest attraction, they gave us 1,200 and I put the rest on my credit card!

So we are now sponsored by Boatylicious Marine who are very proud to finally make this happen for us. I can only hope that our bank account and the sale of the left over parts can clear my credit card

Arriving at the show this morning I started to panic!! our stand was too small and our package would not fit!!!! I was told we would be ok with a slight overhang but to be honest we were never going to get away with it!!!

Hewshaw's delivered the MacRIB all wrapped up and after a few panic phone calls I got hold of the floor manager and asked for a H&S inspection to clear our overhang. I wanted to know right away what action I needed to take. The H&S guy never turned up!!!

Thomas arrived so between me, Thomas and Steve from Henshaws (who wouldn't leave without helping out) started to sign write the Mac RIB with Thomas's awesome signs
