Sydney Boat Show on this weekend

Recommended Posts

Given the Southport race and the Show don't clash this time, there should be a few extras working and visiting.

I'll be over for the whole Show. Stand 186 - All Inflatable Boats.

Phil and Mel have gone closer to the stereos so they can watch the fashion show......

I look forward to introductions as you come through.

i'm sorry : imho the boat show ceased being relevant many many years ago. that is unless you feel like gawking close up at power boats you'd never buy even if you could afford them

Chris R, when was the last time you dropped by us? Come to the show, you just may be surprised even for an ageing E22 sailor! We have specific parts designed here in Aus for you arriving this week.

Mh 111/Chris. I agree with Phil.

The Boat Show is one of the few places we can take items out of the mainstream for informed buyers to kick the tyres and choose the best equipment for themselves/ their boat.

With the decline of the specialist Chandlery and informed staff (except for a few notable exceptions), it is harder for suppliers to get better quality/ more expensive / niche products to market. And then we get pissed off when we hear that it was bought over the internet "because I didn't know I could get it here"...

Good Stands will offer informed technical advice and a wider range of items.

Plus there are always Show deals ;)

 

Rant over. I'd better jump on a plane.

No one gives a fuck about the Sidney boat show. Why is this foreign trash continually posted on a US sailing site?

I do wonder what the Ed thinks about his slandering of anything outside of the US given the amount of "foreign" advertisers on this site.

 

See you at the show tonight!

Day 1 over. We were busy right until close which makes a nice change. Quick wander around the marina revealed as many yachts as power boats - what a turnaround. Most were AWB and cruising cats and the McConaghy boys must sleep in as the Cone was all canvassed up. The X yacht XP38 looked very nice. Couldn't get to the Dehler 41 as their tent blocked off entry to the finger end. No Sydney Yachts as the 43 went to Southport.The R39 looked lovely.Nothing like lots of varnish and carbon on the same boat.

We were good inside. Some good interest on liferafts, particularly now the new regs have been released.

Sorry to hear about the Snidney boat show, but be sure keep us all informed about how it goes. We are all interested.....

 

And no one is interested in Olympic sailing as it's not a legit athletic event and doesn't belong on the Olympic venue....

Iran - No

Iraq - No again

Cuba - Sigh! anyone remember the Bay of Pigs?

Afganistan - Sorry No again, but you're prepared to leave your allies there.

I could go on..but you know your history.

 

And yes the only country to ever detonate not one but two nuclear weapons on the CIVILIAN population of a foreign country...and guess who owns America now based on debt owed?? that would be China!

 

Not a overly great track record heh dorag

Now why is that?????

I'm talking about the Olympics and you're talking about war? Huh?

 

Regardless, you are not entitled to your own facts: (1) the gooks in China own only 13% of our national debt; (2) incinerating Japan wasn't soemthing we wanted to do, but Japan, as a nation, declared war on the US and we wanted to avoid killing even more Japs from a land invasion alternative. Period. The rest of your points are even more silly.

 

Now, since Oz used to be a great ally, as in Vietnam, where were you folks in the invasion of Iraq and Afghan? Where are you in sending a message to Iran and N Korea, who are endangering the world with their nukes? When they twitch, we will incinerate them in a day. Good riddance.

 

No wants or promotes war. The fucktards like you, who have never had to pay the price, are always, as in always, the biggest mouths yapping. Now, why is that?

Great day to be in Sydney yesterday with light winds, sunshine and 21 Deg C. I love visiting the SIBS to check out the new models. This one was particularly appealing. And before you ask, I have no idea what she rates.

Nice one Jamie although a disappointing lack of the inspirational internal decor that was such a feature of her predecessor!

What a delight to see the beautifully restored traditional elegance of Hurrica V in amongst the acres of white plastic.

post-449-002742100 1344169695_thumb.jpg

 

Not sure that traditional elegance is applicable here with Anarchist Phil hard a work on his Deckhardware stand.

 

post-449-037637600 1344170002_thumb.jpg

 

Also good to catch up with Anarchists Mel and Mezaire on the stand.

Mezaire told me of his plans for an upgraded Sydney-Hobart live and on the spot reporting service direct from the shores of the Derwent later this year following up on his superb work at the end of the last Hobart. I will be there myself to lend a hand Mez.

Fuck off troll, this is a sailing forum. You know about sailing, right? It's that Olympic Sport at which the USA sucks; big time. And we all know you know about sucking big time.

You're too smart for your own good Toe Rag. Your normal rant is how the USA has come to our rescue and we've never contributed anything in return. Now you say we were a great ally in Vietnam. Small steps to recognition of reality or troll fuck up? Iraq and Afghan(Istan)? We were there (Iraq) and still are there in Afghanistan. 33 Australians dead, and don't make this a pissing contest on casualties or you're really out of order.

 

Now back in your gator hole and let us discuss things we're interested in. You can concentrate on what you're best at - how to get a really inflated head out of a really tight, constricted, paranoid arse hole.

Ignore DoRag, he's one of the biggest and bluntest tools in the shed.

 

Great show, was my first in Sydney and was so great to meet heaps of cool Anarchists and catch up with others I haven't seen in ages.

 

Many thanks to Mel, Phil and Robyn for getting me there, putting me up and basically looking after me!!

Met a few Anarchists. Chris did you drop by?

Got beaten up by one Melbourne Osaka entry but helped them out.

Sorry Windcraft, I got my Dehlers and Dufours fingers and thumbs mixed up. Jason was there the next day.
