Is the boat home yet?
Lots you can do without the Bristol owners group....prepping the hull
and topsides for painting, re-bedding and re-installation of the life lines and stanchions, that will get you started on the outside....perhaps check the mast wiring
, and if it's original changing it out, converting mast
lights to LED, working on the interior
wiring and converting lighting
to LED, cleaning the water
tank/tanks inside.....you'll have enough to keep you busy while you search for info both on the net and from other owners....perhaps doing a search on Bristol 35's on sailboatlistings.com might bring up an owner or two.........
You are going to be busy, busy, busy! When you need a break, we'll be back to Moorahme in about 3 weeks!
As I like to say.....Carry on as if you're normal!<grin>
