Yes the quality of construction is good on all Bristols but it seems to be particularly excellent on the decimal series boats.
Just had the bottom stripped (due to lack of adhesion of the old paint) and painted on mine, not one single solitary blister on the whole bottom.
Then you hear about 5 year old Beneteaus with blisters and cracking gelcoat.
