Southampton Boat Show

We went to the Southampton boat show today, where Honnor Marine had a stand with some of their craft, including the Cape Cutter. With Drift getting close to completion, it was particularly useful to be able to crawl over a finished boat and take some measurements as we consider the ” bits ” we want on the boat.

There were plenty of other interesting boats on show.

There was a yet another 19ft gaffer on a trailer, this time the Windhunter from Poland. Massive cabin, but no centreboard and small sail area. Lots of space, but not the best looking boat – really  quite dumpy with such a high coach roof . Big volume for the money (similar price to the Cape Cutter), but doesn’t look like it would handle weather that well. 20130921-182019.jpg20130928-100317.jpg

Mike Brook launched his fascinating book at the show and is camped out on the Cape Cutter / Honnor Marine stand. Despite a wet week, he has sold plenty of books and all proceeds go to charity. Its available here  http://www.theosfuture.org
