I went to the show for the first time on Sunday. Spent 8 hours there - exhausting. As a new ribber (not been on the water in my boat yet) found it very useful - all the people I spoke to were very helpful (RNLI, MCA, engine dealers, rib dealers, chandlers).
Booked a PB2 course for Oct 8/9 with a good discount and some kit also at a good discount.
Got the two of use in for the price of one and parked for nothing - 2 minutes away! But I do have a blue badge and various health problems.
