Re: Bristol 29.9

I'm also seriously considering a 29.9 for our next boat. We would be moving up from a hunter 27 and are looking for something that can comfortably make the passage to Bermuda (from NJ) in the near future.
Understanding that these boat can stand up to heavy weather, are they comfortable in bigger seas? Do they pound excessivly? And lastley is the centerboard a concern when in bad weather? i.e. banging around or bouncing up and down?

I am also kind of partial to Bristols, my second boat was a beaten up caravel that we broght back to life and I was impressed with the over craftsmanship on the boat, especially when compared to our current Hunter...
