I have bought a 1967-8 Bristol Sailstar (Courier), which came from Kansas, (Jayhawk country) and before that it had been and still was, registered in Minnesota. So, I may have Jayhawks old boat , or not, but I love the boat, every year I repair a bunch of stuff while we have extended "on th hard time" here in Minnesota. I also have a lot of text information on the B26 and the shops/yard on Franklin street, in Bristol RI from former employees and owners.So if you are still looking to glean some shreds of knowledge on these wonderful well built old boats, I should be only too pleased to help you , eh?
Great Sailin, eh mates?
