Guess the economy is hitting over there too!

Yes, the show is much smaller, and there are fewer exhibitors and crowds. However, all that mean for us was that it was easier to look for mark-downs (like a Standard Horizon HX-280 for my son for £80). We ended up buying a lot more than in previous shows, and it was easier to talk to people at the Classic Boats areas and elsewhere.

They say it's the recession making it smaller, especially for the big power boats, as well as the snow that has really slowed down travel over here.
