I went and thought it was not as good as last year which was not that good.

Not over impressed;was there really anything that new or creative.

The Protector cabin rib was worth looking at but I 'm not convinced about all that steel work close to your head.

There were less ancilliary stalls than in previous years.

Maybe the industry has reached a peak which will last for a while and then some new ideas will arise.

Went to look at two specific RIB's.

Was a little disapointed though and dont think we would go next year unless we had somthing specific to go for.
Will stick to London Boat Show as that nore of a day out for all the family.

Well, I enjoyed it - but then again, it was my first time - oh er missus, have not heard myself say that for awhile.

Weather could have been a bit sunnier, but Saturday afternoon, did bring some sunshine and I even managed to get out on one boat ride - albeit a bit of a wet one!!!
Plus the bar was open and I finally managed to get away from Pompey about 20:30 (hm, the show ended at 18:00)

Sorry to have missed so many of you that semed to have been there, perhaps we can get something organised for Southampton later on this year - or do you lot not go to that one?

Thanks for all that gave generously to SOc fund and I even managed to get a closer look at Hot Lemon IV - nice!!

Take care and keep in touch.
