hey i found an old bristol owners forum for those of you out there that may have the same problem as me. My boat turned our to be a 29 footer. the web page is Bristol Owners' Association Home Page
it has not been updated in a while but there is a large number of boats registered there. Mine is one of the few that has made it to the pacific nw. i have her on the hard
right now all deck
fittings pulled. Rebedding the deck
, going to put new non-skid down. Only rot
i found so far was in the bulkhead at the back of the quarter berth. Seems to be leaking from the stern rail mount. Also getting new hull and bottom paint
. I am also going to change to external chain plates. As close to the rail as the lowers are i won't lose any measurable pointing. Anyone else made this change out there?
