Post Amateur Boatbuilder Saying Hello

Hi Everyone,

I'm a new member here and am looking forward to posting. I've read the forums a bit before, but I think it's time to start posting!

As for me, I'm working on re-building a 1976 Bristol 27 in preparation for a long-term solo-cruising. I spend as much time as possible on the project, but it's a long term thing and it will be done when it's ready (haha).

Here's the site about my project -

Look forward to interacting with everyone soon!

wow. I spent some time looking at your project galleries. Talk about a major refit!

We look forward to you sharing your expertise and experience here on the forum. You'll find, I hope, that there are a few others lurking hereabouts who have been crazy enough to take on projects of similar magnitude. We should probably consider locking you guys all up in the same sub-forum, just to keep you all from infecting the rest of us with your work ethic.
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

You have a very interesting project.

Good luck
