I just wanted any details I could get. I just looked at the boat
though, and it probably isn't the boat for me.
I love to look at the older full keel
boats and presently own a Bristol 27 as my first monohull
, but I was a catamaran racer
for 15 years.
I know cruising isn't a race
but maybe I'll go look at the Ericson
35 MK III I've been considering and just keep my Bristol.
My Bristol 27 has proven herself to be a rather good old boat so maybe I'll restore her.
So far I haven't done much to the boat besides a bottom job, new main, and engine
. Ended up with an outboard
instead of the 352 lb 10 hp Bukh
. Then I sailed her hard for 3 years.
The boat is a pretty awesome boat though. The owner has had her for 19 years. He was a cabinet maker as you may be able to see from the photos taken below decks.
