Hello !

We have a 1969 Bristol 33'. We bought her for less than the price of a small car, up in New Hampshire and so far have made it down to Grand Cayman.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Congratulations on the boat. I'm glad to hear a story of someone who hasn't paid a fortune for their boat.
kind regards,
