Lunch time beer anyone?

Sorry Andy, it would have been a good idea, but Iíve an 8.30am meeting in Weymouth for work then going to the show on the way home.

Iíll keep an eye out for you though.

Went today, first time on a RIB shows numbers just right quite busy but not heaving compared to my last visit.

Would have liked to have gone on a Ribcraft but ended up on a Ribquest & Humber - Humber are very keenly priced compared to the competition so no point wasting Ribcrafts time. Good show of RIBs especially in the marina. Humber were not listed as showing but had 4 models, Ribcraft loads and numerous other marques Good chat with the guys on the Suzuki stand and Steve (pictured) who took us out was on top form Kids thought it was great.....

that suggests that they aren't really in competition... like comparing a bmw 1 series and a fiesta. You should possibly have tried both so you can see what, if anything, you might be missing.

You are driven around in them so difficult to tell and even if I could drive it there is no way I could tell the difference Montys on TV got to go

A bit like testing beds

Being a RIB newcomer once myself, I do however suggest you try several different models before you buy though.

Well I thought that the attendance today was quite good, plenty of visitors but not so many that you could not get anywhere. Some exhibitors thought that tomorrow could be quite busy. Guess the good weather has a part to play.
Shock horror, I managed to get a couple of items I have been looking for at reasonable prices - McMurdo PLB210 for £189.95 including floaty pouch, lanyard and belt pouch, and a couple of Crewfit 190s. Just hope that I do not need any of them
