It is very solidly built. There is a lot of storage
on them because there are no quarter berths and there are dozens of drawers. The v-berth is large with a huge hatch
overhead for good ventilation. many owners have added a hatch
in the salon
. The headroom
is over 6'3 and the deck
is easy to move around on. The engine is accessible, the stuffing box is not.
There is a google
users group for the Bristols, with some good info on there. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bristol39-40
