No but I'm predicting a distinctly frosty atmosphere in the workshop

I had an excellent day at the show today, just a shame I ran out out time, I didn't get a proper look at half the stuff there.

Nice to see some Ribnet faces on the pontoon, some I've not met before; Delta Rich, Andre, Ostroda, Adam Younger, Biffer etc etc. Paul Lemmer and I think Kevin Goulding were spotted having a wander round too.

Had some interesting and informative chats with the likes of Hamilton Jets and Mustang Marine who build the latest incarnation of the Ocean Dynamics ribs. I'll be taking orders for my version soon

BAE Systems had a Pac 950 and a 24 there, the guys were quite chatty for a change and I managed to learn a few things about my own boat which is handy.

Same with MST who don't supply to the general public either but their man was still quite happy to stand in the drizzle for half an hour talking to me.

I found most people really were quite friendly and helpful even when you make it clear you're not going to give them a multi million pound contract. One guy knew he wasn't going to sell me his 5 figure priced, 100Mb ethernet backboned intercom system but still took the time to give me tips on how to clean up the interference on mine. (Apparently they introduce their own background white noise into the system as people think it's not working )

I'll post up some pics when I get my macbook back from the shop

Feel free to come and bang on the window of the dive tank. I'm diving in it / helping to run the tank but this year the historical diving guys bailed out, no-one accepted the dive challenge and very few exhibitors want us to demonstrate their gear (they must have got wise to divers having sticky fingers!)

Anyway its pretty boring sitting there making bubbles all day so come and give us a wave!

Had a good wander round the show this afternoon, and as usual found it very interesting.

As always it was good to have a chat with Andre, and to meet up with a few ex-colleagues.

Some interesting boats out on the pontoons, and gear inside the halls.
It appeared every suspension seat manufacturer was there.

Wandered down to the diving tank at one point to say hello to diver 1, but you were emptying the tank 'over the side' at the time and looked a bit busy showing a young lady how the huge valve on your big Blue hose worked

Barrus had several sizes of smaller Mariner 2-strokes on display, 10, 15, 25HP etc, but for sale to commercial users only, which I'd heard about but not actually seen before.

God knows how some of the smaller companies with stands justify the cost each year. Rows of 6ft wide stands down one side of the 2nd hall each populated by a very bored looking salesman that didn't look like he'd spoke to anyone all day wasn't exactly inviting.

Some stands had obviously been left in the hands of the 'girl from the office' whilst the Sales Manager attended a very important meeting in the bar, which was busy by the way, and they either looked bored stiff or terrified somebody would ask a question.

Nasher.
