Seawork 2022
 
Anyone at Seawork this week?

I'm planning on going down Thursday morning for a couple of hours but have been told parking was a nightmare yesterday because West Quay car park was full as there are very few trains into Southampton.

Not going this year, been a couple of times pre-covid & really enjoyed it. Like a boat show without the numpties. The freebies are better quality too[emoji6]

think you may find there was a strike on railways yesterday, so may account for lack of trains.

I cheated yesterday and went by boat and parked for free on the Ribcraft pontoon. Only for ten minutes though for a quick chat with the lads.

I was there yesterday. I managed to park right next door on Town Quay. It was very hot inside, but lovely outside!

Thanks guys, I'm going to head down when the traffic has had a chance to calm down and take my chances parking.

I've been today. Parking was OK

kicks.fully.petal had a few spaces but if you are planning on being there less than four hours, there is quite a lot of roadside parking in the immediate vicinity.

I was a bit underwhelmed by the boats and very nearly overwhelmed by the temperatures in the exhibition halls. It made looking round the halls unpleasant although there was a fair bit of interesting stuff to look at.

Thanks GuyC

I normally park in West Quay and walk down, or sometimes in the carpark next to the hotel that the SBS entrance etc is normally on.

I like it as a show and go every year - when it's on of course - there's some really interesting stuff there, and no big white pointy boats.

Did you see the CTV Seacat Columbia?
