Considering a 22 ft Caravel built by Bristol
Ok gang, the old Marine is looking at this boat for my 1st boat. Any one have comments positive or negitive about the manufacture? I will have it surveyed for sure. Just wondering if it will be a good boat for the Sf Bay to practice my basic Keel boat lessons.

Well...I'm no expert, but it looks just perfect to me!

It might be worth it for the slip alone!

LOL, me too. It should be good to learn on, I am looking at that and a Dufour 24 footer

I agree, that slip/Marina is only 10 mins from my house, and the same Marina I take my lessons at.

I have a Bristol 29, and have been very happy. The Bristols are known to be very well built in the "classic glass" style. My boat is a 1969 model and has not major issues with the hull or any other important system. Good luck!
