We're going, although it's sh1te we get free tickets & make a weekend of it with friends. They combined it with the outdoor show which improves it a bit. I'm looking for a couple of nice new LJs. Looking at the Spinlock deckvests & the crewsaver ergo.

I'm there enjoying the shoe for all 9 days of it. Dull as it gets I'd rather be there than on a rib for 9 days teaching at the beginning of January!

No Ribcraft or even XS!

That's not a good sign.

I've looked at 'em & I really really want one, but I know that it'll be too cumbersome & hot in the summer especially for fishing. It'll finish up hung in the shed only get trotted out for "special" trips.

I will probably go as Im still looking for bits to spend money on, and of course the weather may well be freezing / snowy / crap and that will put me off any normal activity.

Richards Bros have got a coach trip going up from west wales, £151 per person including 2 nights B&B in the (four star) Hilton Paddington
20 of us from Tenby booked so far, plus a few others from Cardigan etc.
A few places still left.
Got to make your own way (tube/taxi/bus) from Paddington to Excel though

Just booked my tickets, RYA members get any day tickets for £11.

What days are people going, I am going on the Sunday, hunting for NMEA 2000 kit and maybe a hand held VHF.

Should get a RIB.net stand next year!

I haven't been to the boat show for many years, my wish list of kit is growing, are the deals at the show worth it? Some of the deals I am finding online seem impressive.

You'll be disappointed, especially with the London show.
