Purchasing a Bristol 29.9
We have friends with one. Nice boat for a couple, for weekends, as it isn''t too big but they are generally well put together and pretty. (It''s a Bristol, after all.) Our friends are looking for something bigger because of the children. As they often sail in company with other club members, they are also looking for something faster, because they''re somewhat tired of always being at the tail end of the fleet. A faster boat would also provide them more variety in the harbors they could visit in a day''s sail. If you have a lot of harbors to explore near you (we don''t), and don''t have crowds to entertain overnight, the Bristol 29.9 should be a great cruising platform for the long haul.
