MABristol22 is on a distinguished road
Hi. I'm up in Boston, and I bought a 22' Bristol made near the end of the cycle, in 1976. It's great sailing.

The cabin is very small, and not much deck room, but the tiller is very responsive. I have fixed keel, draft of 3'6" and in and around the few Boston Harbor islands I have to be careful, but she's way easy to handle. Bought mine a couple years ago, and been slowly fixing her up, not that she needed much. The jib sail is huge, and mainsale smaller than I expected, but you get used to it. I have the original alcohol stove, works great, and small icebox and sink. None of the electronics are original however, and I'm looking to put new lights on her, this year.

Maybe we can meet over by Cape Cod Canal, sometime! Cheers.
