B29 Bristol Channel Cutter

This might be a stretch to try this but here goes.

I own a Bristol B29 and the interior needs to be restored. I was thinking that it might be interesting to see if the interior could just be rebuilt. I LOVE the interior of the BCC and despite over a foot of beam difference, I think I may be able to replicate that interior in my boat.

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on this?

Does anyone have any dimensions of the interior parts of the BCC?

I see a BCC for sale in Annapolis, I may ride down there and take a look if the owner would oblige showing the boat to someone with no intentions of buying.

Thanks in advance guys!

Re: B29 Bristol Channel Cutter

As long as you don't destroy the shape of the hull by removing too many thwartship bulkheads while replacing you could get a copy of the BCC interior blueprint and replicate all the major bulkheads and go from there.
Is your mast deckstepped? Make certain it has a compression post underneath if you remove a bulkhead.
From a Bare Hull is a pretty good read for those who may want to do something like that.
