When it came to placing the order for the widebeam The Crick Boat Show was to be the final decider. I had several companies equally catching my attention. I needed swaying one way or another and felt Crick was, at the time the most efficient and probable way for this to happen.
I spent the whole of Saturday at the show, arriving before it had even officially opened for the day! As per usual the weather was not the best. This did not cause a problem I still managed to get around all the boat builders on the shortlist. I have to say the boat builders had come up with some rather interesting concepts some perhaps more suited for an exhibition as opposed to a working design but absolutely showed off what the boat builders were capable of and how they were pushing the design boundaries further than ever before. To pick a perfect example, fake bookshelves that were in fact doors through to different rooms brought a feeling of 007 to the boat building industry.
As planned I left the show without placing an order. I didn't want to jump into anything without a least sleeping on it for a night. A night had passed and bearing i mind earlier shortlisted topics for choosing a widebeam boat builder. One company was now looking favourite of recieving the order. To outline the chosen boat and the spec I have compiled a list taken from the company sales sheet received at the show click here
