Thumbs up Dublin Boat Show 24/25/26 & 27 March

When some of you guys will be at the NEC this weekend I will be at the Dublin Boat Show
First time for Parker Ribs so I am off for the weekend to support our local distributor.

On show will be a Parker 630 RIB with a Mercury Optimax 135

will post photos on my return not only of ribs but perhaps even some interesting "hard boats

Hi Guys

I am back and the Guinness was just great and before you ask no I did not see the Rugby match cos firstly had no ticket and secondly was out there for the boat show. However did see the England coach cos the lads were staying at the Four Seasons hotel which is next to the RDS were the boat show was held

Had my last Guinness at the airport just after kick off and then had to board the aircraft. The tickets were going for 1,000.00 from the touts and as our lads lost what a waste of cash if any English fan mad enough bought one

Hope to see you soon and Graham no doubt we will meet in Poland

Andre

PS. Steve found just the craft for you should you wish to part exchange the Black Widow Guess which one?

Re: Dublin Boat Show 24/25/26 & 27 March

Good pictures Andre, is the Irish boat show much like the London show in size?
With showing at boat shows and the avertising in mags, Parker RIBs must be seeing some real benefits in sales.
I've noticed that the standard size RIB now seems to have gone from 5.8 to 6.3 or 6.5 meters, is there much difference in boat handling with this increase.

Not yet Robbie as these things don't come easy. But we have already made a name for ourselves . Wait till you see my next demo rib

The bigger the rib the better it copes in the rough. One day I will take you out



Andre


PS by the way nice bit of tiling

Question Re: Dublin Boat Show 24/25/26 & 27 March

If I may say so Andre perhaps You should try to avoing every boat you see that has a roll bar on it. Your friends might start to think you have an unhealthy interest with structural apparatus and reinforcements.

You've already gone and got Ian shopping for one.

Isnt that so Ian?

Re: Dublin Boat Show 24/25/26 & 27 March

well as it may be yes Steve
I was talking to 1 of the Fletcher guys on Saturday and they may be able to do a deal on a roll cage.
They are thinking about doing the 17 inboard but do not have the mould

so ............................

have to wait and see. In any case they will at least give be 10% discount to inc fitting

A flybridge RIB !!!

Andre quick I've just found a niche in the market for Parker RIBs - It needs plugging

Only an idea but think about a steering wheel on the roof of the Baltic cabin?
