Second Thoughts on the Ideal Cruising Boat


Aye,my friend.I have taken a look at the Bristol 35.5. She is on my final list.She''s a real beauty.I believe she would be a pleasure to sail.

Thanks for the link on the coring.I''ve run my present boat pretty hard aground twice.I thought I was going to loose a tooth filling during one of them. O.k., maybe that last part is a lie ;^) ... My boat does have a solid bottom though and she came out of both abuses unscathed.Maybe a cored bottom would''ve done the same, I just don''t know.Looking at used older boats in my price range, I just know I have to be very,very careful on what ever I buy.With some of the names manufactures used for their coring process, I find it much harder to find out what''s in it.I''ve not given up though.I just need to learn more. Thanks again!
