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.

It might be worth it for the slip alone!

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

Gunny,

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!
