Builders but no bottom to the Boat Show


If you type ‘watching paint dry’ into YouTube you get a choice of 358 action-packed videos.

Someone at National Boat Shows must have watched them all, chewed on the end of his pencil for a while, and thought: “I know. Let’s have live webcams of people building stands at the London Boat Show . That’ll knock spots off wet emulsion.”

I wasn’t going to bother watching, but then I read something on the Yachting Monthly website that promised if I did I would see the ‘arse-scratching of electricians’.

Potentially, that is a highlight of the show. Dear reader, I visited, I viewed, I left.
