Bristol 22 Caravel - opinions?

Any comments on this boat? I am downsizing from a 1976 B-32, lovely full keel but way too expensive to maintain. This 22 looks in need of a lot of cosmetic repair. Have had a 22 Seaward, so am used to no head room and porta-pottie, etc. I like a heavy boat, Bristol is solid, in my opinion.

She has a fixed keel, 3'' 6" draft. Teak needs redoing but I redid the 32 so nothing new there. What about the tiller and mainsheet arrangement? I always sat at the stern on previous transom-hung (or wheel)steering, not sideways at this tiller requires.
ANY opinions are very welcome! Thanks.

Bristol 22 Caravel - opinions?

I had a Bristol 22 for a few years. Great boat. The only reason I moved up was my wife and I started week long trips and the head room was an issue. The boat was stable and would take a lot of wind. Great boat to single hand and have fun in.
Much more boat than any in its size range.

Re: Bristol 22 Caravel - opinions?

Came across this thread, and had a question for both of you. I recently purchased a 1975 Bristol Caravel 22 and am starting the restoration process. Wondering if you guys have a picture of the mast rigging and the step as well. Thank you so much and any help would be greatly appreciated!!
