Southampton Boat show

Some level of excitement today… For my birthday we went to have a wonder around the boat show. It is amazing how much overlap their is between things being waterproof and things needing to be dust proof. And given that boats are way more popular than 4×4 expedition trucks the volume of examples to be seem is much more.

We had a full day looking at:

  • Gas stoves and ovens
  • Mastervolt power
  • Batteries
  • Solar panels
  • Mattress designs (Boat mattresses are design to cater for airflow so that mould does not form under them)
  • hard wearing clothing
  • gas connections – found a great universal regulator!
  • water tanks / fresh & grey

and so the day ended with many good ideas and much more reading material. It is amazing how much paper you collect walking through a show. A great visit and well worth a visit. We could have gone back for a second day!
