Re: Bristol 30 or 29

That location for a HIN seems pretty standard for that time period. My 63 Alberg 39 had an oval plate in the same location. Just behind the tiller.

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

If you have a rear lazarette it is a B29. My 68 Cal has no HIN either.

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

Many Bristol owners that lacked the official 1972 HIN found it handwritten on the various wooden parts. It may be worthwhile to look around inside the lockers in the cabin.

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

To the OP: if your Bristol has a lazerette it is a B29 - the B30 has none.
Hull Identification Numbers were not applied to boats until 1972 so no B29 has an HIN. The builder's plate on the aft cockpit bulkhead will show the hull number but that is not an HIN, it simply represents the sequential number of the molded hull.

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

I have a 1969 Bristol 29/30 with hull #146. No complete HIN, just the hull number on the plate in the cockpit. So it sounds like she's a 29, then?

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

Looking at what someone says is a Bristol 30, but this one has a fin rudder aft of the 3/4 keel.
Were different versions of rudder lay out produced?

Re: Bristol 30 or 29

thanks for the help,
best I can tell, someone removed the bossing, faired it back to the hull and took off the skeg. then put on an outboard bracket. It's for sale on north shore Erie, I don't want to drive 3 hours there for something someone bastardized, at least not during exam week.
i can imagine houe a 29.5 went fro what it was to what this boat looks like now.
as well the cut away a lof of the house to put in those large windows, notice how they are symetrical to eachother. DIYer using the same template for each window is my guess.
