Southampton boat show pics

Spent the day at the show today. Lots to see and do! Plenty of RIBS and plenty to dream about!
Few pics to give you a flavour of some, not all of the ribs on view.

Looks quiet

Was lucky enough to be there on Friday and dodged the rain

Fond memories now and dreams of winning the lottery, skerryvore and the inboard redbay were my favourites, sorry biased with the redbays.

Round ireland ribquest looked great too

Some really impressive ribs there. What is very noticeable is how design and production has moved on at some companies and rather than just doing the same old stuff, they have invested in new tech and design ideas.

Not just the likes of scorpion (who's boats at the show were beautifully crafted and finished to a standard that commands a premium) but the likes of rib x and ribeye had real noticeable quality improvements! The technohull on the water looked great too.

I do think some rib builders really need to look at their products and see how they have (or haven't) changed in the last 10 years, and I'm not talking about engines which are in effect someone else's technology improvements.

getting back on thread.. just spent a damp two hours wandering around from 4.30 pm.
- the plus was the £10 after 3.30 pm ticket.
- gawping at the Redbays
- gawped at the Fisheries - all black Protector Rib - nice details on that
- have to have one of those Scott suspension seats
seemed to be more Ribs/Inflatables than I remember last year or the year before, but oh so quiet when I was there (to be understood for the time and weather) lots of expectant looks everytime I walked past a display or booth.
Could have spent some money, but keeping it to get my fuel tank sorted and deck refettled and running again.

I went on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised by the number of ribs. Was a bit disappointed that nobody from redbay could be bothered to talk to me after my waiting for 10 minutes as the only person looking round their boats.

I thought the hysucat looked amazing.

Must have been bad timing we got approached in seconds by a very polite young man, who clearly knew his stuff and good stats of the diesel rib. Nice
