Had a wander round today, as usual some very interesting stuff on show and some very nice boats.
Proper boats, not big White pointy things, and thankfully only one boat I saw had White seats with Blue piping.

A few that caught my eye and that I managed to get a snap of.

Cant help but love the XO270 and all sizes of Targa.
One day a Targa44 will be mine

And a couple more.

The Nauti-craft thing was an interesting concept.

I had a walk round yesterday. I thought that the ribs were poor. Almost 1990's. Nothing really new.
I had a look at one rib considering it was in a show had very bad tube work. All wrinkle around the the transom attachment strap and just untidy. It seems to be going backwards. Loads of fancy seats though

I agree with Biff, nothing new on the RIB front and some of the workmanship on a lot of the boats was a bit short lf acceptable. Never the less a good equipment show and a good opportunity to catch up with old friends ( and enemy's) Alan P

Yep, loads of them, all over the place.

Also had a good look at the interesting 'oddball' outboards on the Barrus stand.
185HP V6 Diesel
90HP Turbo Diesel
Multi-fuel, which has been around a while
Various themes of bolt on jet unit to replace the bottom assembly. Yamaha also had one on their stand.

'Scenery' seemed good this year too

Not sure I like the Bow rider, walk through RIB.

The Stealth painted Cat was cool, very much like a Hummer on the water.

Has a very big gun on top too.

What's the story with that? Is the whole "superstructure" on suspension?

It's two Cat type hulls on hydraulics.

As the boat goes around a corner the hull on the outer 'edge' goes down to roll it in.

The two hulls appear to move around a lot all the time, and the cabin can be raised and lowered.

Sure there's a video around somewhere.
