Anyone Going to METSTRADE this year?

Recommended Posts

I'll be on Stand 02.121 (NZ Pavillion) as usual, but I'll be lurking around for cool stuff too.

It'd be nice to meet some anarchists at beer time.

@MR.CLEAN??

I might be missing it for the first time since 2009.  Got a granny close to death and if I go to Amsterdam instead of seeing her on her last days, I'll be pretty upset.  Might get over to NY on the way to europe, might not...

Good chance for someone else to do a report or three and get the views that our METS reports always get!

I'm really sorry about your granny, that sucks, but we are at that age that parents and uncles get really old, let alone grandparents...

If I can help with anything at METS, just let me know, I'll do my best...

Surprisingly dissapointing... Why?

It didn't work!!

They kept putting excuses, but basically, it's a good idea with only 1/2 of the R&D work done so far.

I think tomorrow they were going to take some spring off the jammer and make two better placed holes to see if it worked

Deffo still a work in progress. The really interesting thing on their stand was the hydrogen power cell. That is kick ass!

Star of the show for me was Pixel su Mare.

JC talked to them about it. He's a cruising head so his eyes where swiveling in his head at the potential reliability and total cost of ownership. In the excitement he was babbling a bit but I'm sure he mentioned something about hydrogen recycling.

Vakaros will be there, though just walking the show rather than a booth. If you'd like to check out the Atlas or chat about the future of sailing instrumentation, definitely let us know! Feel free to get in touch here or at sales@vakaros.com
