Anyone off to the show this weekend? Thought it might be a good place to try on a few different dry suits and see who would like to give me a big discount ;-)

Have a good time guys, we went the first Saturday and deffo worth a visit.

Can’t recall seeing many drysuit bargains but weren’t looking to be honest.

All the usual rib manufacturers exhibiting, managed to get a run on a 6m XS rib which is on my upgrade shortlist and picked up a new chart plotter at a decent price.

Interesting to see the Takacats in the flesh as been toying with the idea of getting one to play in the surf off the beach. Quite fancied a bright yellow one but only available in 3m - will keep fingers crossed they’ll do it in 3.4m next year.
