Quick look on the exhibitors list on the website shows Sea Legs, Cobra, Williams, Ribcraft, Parker, Brig, Ribeye, Ribex and other that I probably have not heard of. Seems like a fair selection to me

Suzuki 175, console with suicide seat plus four single jockeys and a reversible bench. I was originally planning on getting a 585 but had second thoughts at the last minute. With four grown up children who love their waterskiing and a grandchild on the way, the extra space seemed like a good idea. I know bench seats aren't popular on here but I think it will suit my needs.

Makes sense - specing the boat for what you want is key - and at end of thdayit needs to work for you, not what others think.

A 6.4 would have been nice, but budget couldn't stretch.

I've been very restrained and faithful to my original spec - apart from one change to fit a pair of multi-functional digital gauges instead of the analogue set.

we're going down on the first Sunday - how about you?
