I spent today at the show. My first visit, was pretty impressed with the whole set up, definitely not as busy as I had expected though, which I suppose from a visitors point of view is a good thing!
Had a good look around some the ribs, nice to talk to redbay of course
also had a good chat with the C Fury lads, actually went on a run on one of their boats and was really impressed, built like the proverbial tank, a cracker set up and dirt cheap to run. Drooled over some of the cobra and scorpion models and also looked at piranha ribs which I had never seen before. Plenty of ribs and sibs to see and all the main engine manufacturers on site. Opportunity also to go on a rib ride, saw several types of rib being used ribeye/xs etc
Didn't notice any real deals on chandlery or electronics, same prices as online. Looking for a few bits and bobs so going back for a few hours tomorrow.
Walked the pontoons of course eyeing up the big stuff, some seriously nice craft
Had a pint at the guiness bar, lots of eating drinking options-though nothing cheap!!!!
Its a long walk!! Good day out.
