I could have predicted 90% of this thread, even though I've never been to RibEx - simply because almost all tradeshows are the same; the real business isn't from people wandering aimlessly around shows - its from prearranged meetings, known contacts and buyers who knew what they were looking for.
Some people are different. I'd quite happily buy a Rib at the show or become interested enough in one to do so afterwards. I've bought some quite expensive things (100k+) without appointments.

Liked the Renegade ribs designed by Adam Younger other than that nothing took my eye .

Nice to meet up with people though Bogib , Andre and lots of others.

Perhaps later in the year would be better or back on the English side of the Solent to increase numbers through the door.

Nice to see the Independent Lifeboats making a show of it and raising there profiles.

Im so pleased the independant lifeboat people were at the show ! they had a competition to win a Nintendo DSi, we had a call today WE WON !!! the kids are over the moon .

Love the boat......the shot published on the interweb is the one when we're on it ....is there a divine influence here????

I'm glad I found the website. There is one of me and the kids on the 7.8m RIBcraft too. I've also noticed others I've recognised on there too, from this event and the RIB gallery.

i might be wrong (it's been known) but somewhere in my mind is a thought about no more than 12 without a pilot
