Re: Bristol 26 parts

Jayhawk ,
welcome to owning a Bristol 26. Getting info about them is hard. It is as if this boat is the bastard child of Bristol Boats.
As far as hull # are concerened you must look everywer on the boat, draws, thier bottoms, back of cabinet doors, under setees covers etc. I found mine in the aft section of the cockpit there is a wood cover and there was a Bristol logo medalion with the number 3 on it.
I removed the mast stepping plate and found a 1971 penny on the inside ,Must be the commissioning year.
Try conntacting the Herrisoff museam in Bristol RI the should have drawings ? I am told that there is a couple of guys that worked for Bristol back in the day that are working for Bristol Marina in Bristol RI???? not confirmed
The up side is they are a strong boat but not very fast ,remember it is about the journey not the destination Good luck
