Just wanted to introduce myself

Hello everyone, my name is Alex, and I live in the Chesapeake bay area. I inherited my grandfathers Bristol B29 hull#7 a couple of years ago and have been working diligently to get her back to her former glory.

Bohemian is sailable and I plan to take her out many times this year. I have put a lot of work into this boat and I have a lot planned for the future. Next time I head out to the dock I will snap a few pics so everyone can see what I am working with.

Thanks!
Alex

Thank you, I have talked to Dave at lenth last year when I had an issue with my rudder foot. I ended up going a different route but he helped me get the brain juices flowing, he is a really nice and helpful guy.

I am currently dreading redoing my deck and cockpit sole for core rot.

Welcome Alex...Man!!!...What a great gift to receive. I am sure your Grandfathers Mana is with the vessel. I wish you many great adventures on her. There is no limit with a boat like a Bristol 29. Fair winds.
