How do they get those 70-footers in there?

With the Collins Stewart London Boat Show, in association with the Daily Mail, set to open a week today, you can see the build-up of the show, and indeed the show itself, by logging onto new dedicated webcams.

Four webcams will stream live video footage from ExCeL’s South and North Halls, showing the hard work that goes into putting on such a huge event.

A fifth webcam showing action from the marina will go live next week.

A spokesman said: “Enjoy the action of the build-up as well as get a sneak preview of what there is to see when the show opens.”

The live pictures will continue throughout the show, which runs from 11-20 January.
