London Boat Show 2010

A big thank you to Barry for our free tickets, we had a great day out at the boat show. Our aim was to research bathrooms and to see what was new. We failed miserably in the former but Paul spent a lot of time looking at generators, solar panels and calorifiers!

I looked at the boats, most of which were way outside our pocket. In fact I would guess that, for the most part, potential buyers were the retired, or soon to be retired members of the banking fraternity (after all they are the only ones with huge amounts of spare cash at present! If I sound bitter its because the HE Sector have just been told there will be huge cuts in funding).

Here are some of the bigger boats

If anyone else goes I would be interested in what you think. Oh and you might want to take your lunch with you as the food options were dire and very expensive.
