I am back out on the tug and haven't had time to answer or comment on anything said. I am not going to try to bring this old girl back to "Bristol" condition. I do want her to look nice and to be comfortable. I said earlier here or on another forum that I am aware of the time, expense, and numerous future headaches involved in this project. I plan to do all the work I previously spoke of and a whole lot more. I received the boat pretty much gutted out, so putting in something like a marine toilet and holding tank now is the only way to go. I can rebuild the inside cabin anyway I desire but have been downloading as many pictures of interiors that I can. I will stick to as close to original plans as possible. I think I will have to address the deck re-core before I go into the water. I truely believe I have the skills to get this job done. I will be taking as many pictures as I can and posting them when I can. I really do appreciate the input, positive and negative. Thank you all.
