I actually was a little bored. My son (15) loved the opportunity to go out in a zapcat (or was it a thunder cat - I get confused) and 70mph in BananaShark.
I enjoyed a blast with Andre in the 750 Parker, although the lack of engine noise (except prop noise when the prop was out of the water) and hence lack of aural feedback to the passenger in the second row as to what was going to happen in the immediate future, coupled with, I suspect, a slightly smoother ride with a tad less certainty as when and how the bumps - when they came - were going to arrive, made it a slightly less 'certain', 'predictable' ride than my 6.5M Solent.
Otherwise - the reality is that I am not in the market for a new Rib in the next 18 moths, by which time technology will have progressed - I do not need any magic cleaning compound - and I don't want any clothes.
What I do want was not there - aftermarket advice and bits:
* bilge pumps that work, with their advice on installation
* large cosmetically acceptable velcro type pads to secure a flying bow cushion
* stainless steel fire extinguishers
all at a discount!
What was there was a chance to chat to some great ribsters!
I had a slightly dull chat with Hugo who did not seem greatly interested in my collection National Press contacts - strange for the editor of a far from mainstream magazine.....
