Boat Show Review

I will try to anser your questions. I enjoyed the show a great deal and it was great to meet DuaneI at Pussers. A shame no one else showed up.

What was the most interesting thing at the show? The cheap fittings and joinery on the majority of boats. Amazing how many of the production builders have found the very edge of tolerable construction..and then put their toes right up to it.

What new tech devices are available? In boom furling for mains and new mast track slugs/systems.

What new boats should we look to see? How much ching do you have? My fav''s, if I had the winning lotto tic: Tartan 37 (207), Tartan 41 (280), Gozzard 37 (300+), Cabo Rico 42 (450+), North Wind 43 (400), Silver Phantom 44 (700-800). Alden 54 (1.5).

What was the best thing overall? Being able to get a table at Pusser''s without a wait!

:O)
