I made an offer on the boat right where Jeff said I should come in. This is a nice boat - but with the overwhelming inventory on the Market there is no reason for me to rush in (even though I want to).

So I had her surveyed by Mr. Manning (who I was very happy with), and she has some blisters (2') and some wet spots on her deck. I rejected the boat - but would this be a good boat to take on as a project boat?

This is a neat, unique boat - if it is a good project boat how much should I pay? (This might be a good question for Gary, but I welcome responses from everyone of course)

Bristol 29 ?

From a design standpoint these were some of the best all around boats that Bristol ever built. The couple that I have sailed on sailed very well, offering good performance and motion comfort for their size and age.


Good luck,

Jeff
I have always loved the Bristols, but I have never seen the 29. Now i have a chance to buy one. Do you hold this same opinion for the 29?

Jeff, I've noticed over several posts that for whatever the reason(s), you "really don't especially like" the Bristol 29.9. I know you are, of course, the guru of all things sailing, but Paloma has served her crew well through more big storms and other generally unpleasant conditions offshore that 98% of the sailors on this net have ever been, or will be, through. (maybe even than you???). There have been times that I've worried about me and the crew worried about the crew, but we never worried about the boat. So. knowing what I know from hands-on experience with the B29.9 over many years, many storms and many adventures - I would be interested in knowing what you don't like about her??? And does your same opinion extend to the Bristol 27.7, 31.1 and/or 33.3???

s/v Paloma, Bristol 29.9, #141
Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

If you want to see all of the Bristols, with photos, specs, etc., go to the Bristol Owner's site: Bristol Owners' Association Home Page and click on "about the boats", there is also a list of owners by model with their email addresses, etc.
