I had a Bristol 32- built 1976, and did a nice 14 month Atlantic trip. Cape May- Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, Canary Islands, Tobago - up the Caribbean island chain back to Bermuda and then Norfolk.
Boat did great- added a Monitor and inner Forestay and refrigeration. She carried plenty of water but had to add 5 jerry cans diesel.
A little tender but a very strong boat!
