    I wandered around the show on Sunday and found it very buoyant, a good sign for the health of recreational boating in otherwise depressing (political) times.

    The weather was really good and Iím sure that this must have influenced the decision to visit for a few.

    I canít imagine that there is a more expensive place in the entire U.K. to buy a tasteless and unappetising hot dog, though. The street food vendors must be making a killing, presumably they have no conscience.

    Possibly, but I wonder how much they have to pay for their concessions.

    Why mixed feelings?
    You never know, I might be right!

    Yeah, it all went to pot sometime after 2012... Can't imagine why... ;-)

    Time Out will understand, if you know the company that he works for you might also. Not really something I want to take further on here but (I think) I've sent you a pm to explain.

    A good friend of mine does that. It can be very expensive running into literally thousands.

    I'm going tomorrow afternoon, if I can wrap up a work meeting in time. But with the YM/PBO stand a hollow shell of its former self, where to meet other forumites? Mind you, I introduced myself to the then-editor of PBO beside the Sailfish a couple of years ago and was perversely pleased to see a clear flinch as I gave my username. It's good to be recognised.

    I suggest you should still meet there, if last weekend was anything to go by there will be plenty of space on the stand.

    Thanks for the PM. You’re set not to accept them though, so I cannot reply!
