Bristol 22 Caravel - opinions?
Any comments on this boat? I am downsizing from a 1976 B-32, lovely full keel but way too expensive to maintain. This 22 looks in need of a lot of cosmetic repair. Have had a 22 Seaward, so am used to no head room and porta-pottie, etc. I like a heavy boat, Bristol is solid, in my opinion.
She has a fixed keel, 3'' 6" draft. Teak needs redoing but I redid the 32 so nothing new there. What about the tiller and mainsheet arrangement? I always sat at the stern on previous transom-hung (or wheel)steering, not sideways at this tiller requires.
ANY opinions are very welcome! Thanks.
