Bristol 28

The 29.9 post dates the 28. It seems to me that Bristol liked the hull, but wanted something more cruisy - wheel, no bridge deck, and no IOR rig and a centerboard / shoal draft. The move worked as many more 29.9 were built and it seems the production lasted almost until they went under?

If anyone has more info, please share - I am new to the Bristol world.

Thank for the Post. I got to check but I think I had heard of your B28. Fact is I in 20 years I have not found more than 7 B28 hulls. Please send me more info about you Boat. How did you come to own it and where are you located.
