Re: Bristol 26 parts

Ok thanks. It probably isn't the first choice but I'm already too far involved to go back now lol.

My first and primary concern is getting from Washington to California. I would like to take my time and cruise this fall between San Francisco and San Diego. At that point, assuming I make it that far I will make the decision to stay in central or Southern California for a while or go south or west.

Any advice you have and knowledge of these boats will be of help. Besides big projects, my short list is:

All hatches and lazarettes have very secure latches

Making a way to secure my hause(sp?) pipe for my anchor.

Installing bow roller and anchor

Heres a big one. I need a turtle box or some contraption to prevent water getting in my main hatch.

A latch for my bottom companionway ...um... Plexiglass board thing

Adding second reef line system. Probably not single line like my first reef point.

Contemplating my engine locker.

Are there any weak pints you can think of? The rudder maybe but I'm not sure what I could do about that.
