Hi Neil
The link you listed is for the Information I gave the Bristol Owners web site a few years back. Afraid we have no real documentation on how many B28's were laid up from Bristol Yachts. But it starting to look like there may be 10 or 11. I have found 6 hulls but Because some of the boats were laid up and sold before November 1972 not all of the have a HIN in the hull.
So in you travels in Tx keep and eye for a B28.
One Hull was a Katina damage Boat that was sold on ebay this summer and shipped back to Marblehead Ma. So no telling were the rest are.
Thanks
Les

Bristol owners I need your help. Winter is upon us and many boats will be hauled for the winter. So please keep a eye out for Bristol 28's.
Thanks
PS these are not Bristol Channel Cutter's.
B28 are fin keel Bristols

Bristol 28

I have a 1973 Bristol 28 and I agree it is hard to find any info on them. I used to be a yachtbroker for 15 years and rarely came across one. Our keel and rudder look quite different than yours. We have a sort of a swim platform attached to our transom (probably added to increase the waterline when previous owner raced her) Our rudder appears to be much longer than yours and is attached to a very narrow skeg. As we were fitting her out this year we noticed that the skeg has delaminated right at the bottom where it attaches to the rudder and we are wondering how to repair it. When we bought the boat in 1991 the skeg was delaminated so we had the yard (Spring Point in S. Portland) build a new skeg.I guess they built it the same way and it did the same thing. It's not as bad as before except that there appear to be 2 separate pieces so now nothing is holding the smaller piece (that attaches to the rudder) to the bottom of the skeg. We don't know if just grinding it down and reglassing will hold it or if we should put a metal plate on there and then glass it. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
Our boat's name is WIRED and she was previously owned by an electrician in Portland and was raced, I believe. We've owned her for almost 20 years and she has been a great boat. Sails like a dream even with the old sails we bought her with (probably will replace the genoa soon).

Good to hear from you. Email me at iiilps(at)aol.com and I send you picture of my skeg. We cut it off at one time to rebuild the rudder. You B28 make the number 7 of the hulls I found. Does you boat have a HIN on the starboard quarter. Would like to have some pictures of you Boat. I have some of others I can share with you. B28 were build to race in the 1/2 ton class In early 70"s.
Smooth sailing
Les

correction OVER 20 Bristol 28s - through 1976

I have #20, 0276 is hull date. It seems to be evolving towards the 29.9 as it appears to have the 29.9 rig (longer boom, & 32' P), and a anchor platform/sprit.

The 29.9 post dates the 28. It seems to me that Bristol liked the hull, but wanted something more cruisy - wheel, no bridge deck, and no IOR rig and a centerboard / shoal draft. The move worked as many more 29.9 were built and it seems the production lasted almost until they went under?

If anyone has more info, please share - I am new to the Bristol world.

Thank for the Post. I got to check but I think I had heard of your B28. Fact is I in 20 years I have not found more than 7 B28 hulls. Please send me more info about you Boat. How did you come to own it and where are you located.

Re: Look for Bristol 28 owners

Good Morning,
I don't know if this forum is still active but I just acquired a 1975 Bristol 28. HIN Number is BYT28018575 I am currently in Southern Maryland. I bought it from the Marina, the previous owner came into some hardship and bad timing with the hull and sold it to them and I picked it up. I have now had it a week or so but little bit of work here and there but she is coming together. I am hoping to have her back in the water soon but every thing has its place. She is currently red base, a dark navy blue on top with a white deck. Ol' Blu is her name. I am Johnny. I am still trying to find out if the engine onboard is standard or an upgrade. She is equipped with a 2 cylinder Westerbeke Diesel Engine. Is this in the normal. If so can anyone share engine model number can not locate. If any questions or tips for a new sailboat owner please let me know. This is my first boat so I am definitely getting the works.
