Older Bristol Boats

Im narrowing my boat search down and have found two older Bristol boats a 1980 35'' and a 1984 38''. Both of these boats appear to be in excellent shape. Questions:

- Does anyone have experience pro or con on older Bristol boats? Any generally known problems?

- Does anyone have eny experience with the sailing performance of these boats? While I realize they are cruisers, I want a boat that has at least good performance under sail. Ive rejected Island Packet, because I want more performance.

I would appreciate any comments.

Gary
