New Bristol 24 owner

I purchased a 1967 Bristol Corsair 24 a year ago. She is a rock-solid pocket cruiser that loves heavy air. The 2,500lb. skeg keel provides outstanding control while pinching. A lot of boat for the size.

Areas to investigate pre-purchase...Make sure the keel is lead (there is a removal piece a floorboard midship). And check the shroud plates on port and starboard for stress cracks (mine had been replaced with larger ones by the previous owner).

My two cents...hope this helps. Love the boat!
