Since the OP posted this nine years ago, they may have found something by now. ;^)

Re: Bristol Channel Cutter

Some of us take longer than others....
I still want to know how that little boat does in big water. L&L seemed to show they could do anything if they just heaved too if conditions got too rough. I love little boats and would rather have one than my V 40, just want to go to Alaska on occasion...

I don't think he's been in any rough weather but this guy lives on one.

Thumbs up Re: Bristol Channel Cutter

Don't confuse the 34 with the 28, I carry the sail of a 44 and am 46 ft. overall,
I love the gozzards but would have cost a million to get what I have , I rarely heel over 24 deg. to get hull speed. full keel has it disadvantage in tight , but safer overall. I agree with most of the post and there are many great boats out there for real bargains . Best of Luck finding your dream
