Bristol 24 questions

Piperdude ~

On your Jonah’s Charm site, saw that your OB can tip up out of the water, although the lazarette cover will not close all the way when it is. Have you modified the engine or the boat in any way to enable you to do this, or is that standard? What size (HP) is your engine? I have a Mercury 8HP 2-stroke long shaft on mine, and it will not tip up enough to get the prop out of the water.

Nice boat you have.

Would like to ask some more questions--please email me web at batchelerlaw dot com
