Bristol 24 Support

I'm a new owner of a Bristol 24 built in the mid 70's and am looking for guidance and support as I work to get her in the water. Open to hearing other's experiences with repairing and sailing these boats. If anyone lives in Maine, local help would be great.

Re: Bristol 24 Support

Hello! You have really chosen a great little boat! I would recommend looking at the website and contacting James Baldwin about it too. He is by no means the last word on things but he has been working with the classic plastics and he has sailed his own all over the place. His whole website has lots of good reading. What kind of repair does she need? Any photos of her?
