Lots of pretty boats at the D-show this year, but I was not that impressed. Too many of them are poor compromises. The gadget of the show should have been the SeaBob www.seabob.com from the crowd drawing effect.

My boat does not "qualify"...not enough numbers built....yeah just one!!!

see, to them, custom boats, small yards, hand made, well made, seaworthy, built with pride and wood, don't count...

This is only to show how this has become a $$$$$$$$$ business industry, the elan???? the salona????

OHHHH My!!!! Jaysus, Mary, and Joseph, the Saints and Our Lady Of Fatima!!!!!!!! (All together at least 4 times)........

apparentely the Beneteau does't even make it anymore, and to shut the Froggies up...here's some candy...you get the inovation prize...

Its like the WWE they are all champions at something....

What the hell is wrong with them?? Even the X ( I had one 10 years ago, and talk about a good boat) isn't what it used to be....

This just shows what I already knew when they print all those good reviews in the magazines....its the money that talks not the boat...

Then the people rush to buy them, then the keels fall, the masts bend, the boats sail like crapp, have lists to stbd....you name it..

THANK GOD I WENT ON MY OWN AND BUILT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rather expensive I'm afraid, I nearly bought one on the spot until they named the price. The cheapest SeaBoB version Ravejet is 7675.- euro with German tax. The really cool CAYAGO VX2 sets you back 11281.- euro. With the extras you might need, add 8000.- euro. The spare battery pack is 5688,- alone. Big Lithium-Ion does not come cheap.

I visited BOOT 2007 trade fair too last Saturday and from what I saw I can tell that Bénéteau and Dufour will have difficulty selling the new range of cruising boats they presented because of their layout extravagance. Why on earth do they insist dividing the settee in two parts (port and starboard) and putting the kitchen next to the gangway, adjacent to one of the aft cabins?
