Bristol 35.5'''' and yeh maybe others
I go through this every now and then. Presently I have a 30'' pilot boat, had a 34'' Charlie Morgan Columbia for fifteen years, but can''t completely tear myself away from the idea of a Bristol 35.5, and yes the 38.8.
Though both are old boats and the 38.8 is twice the price of the 35.5 without any real difference in layout...only bigger I keep coming back to the 35.5'' with fixed keel.Should I be looking at other designs like the 41 Jeanneau Sun Legende or the Crealock 37, or maybe the Shannon 38?
Unfortunately I think I need about four different boats to satisfy all of my boating desires. I am a hopless boat whore.
Any boat, anytime, John Gov.

Bristol 35.5
I owned and cruised a 1980 Bristol 35.5 for three years. Made the mistake of selling it. I really liked its sailing performance, looks and quality. :) Have you checked out the Practical Sailing review on the 35.5?

Hard to beat the 35.5. If you like it, why go for anything else? Of course, you'll need a little something on the side, as you say. You slut.
