Bristol 27 project boat
Hello everybody,
I am new to this forum and even newer to sailing. I was given a 1966 Bristol 27 to bring back to life. The inside has been almost completely gutted and the outside has deck, teak and equipment issues. I believe from what little I know about sailboats that all the rigging is there. I am hoping to be floating by late spring 2010. Any tips, photos, articals ie help would be greatly appreciated. thank you all and happy sailing

Thank you for opening up that picture. I have no idea what I'm doing as far as the posting process. The inside of my Bristol has nothing. I am rebuilding from the sole up. I have a dozen or so pictures of other Bristol interiors to gleen off. The work will be hard enough ,but my job takes me away for two weeks at a time. On the other hand I also have two weeks at home to work on her. I have sent for the Don Casey book on fiberglass hull and deck repair. If I can get the hang of the picture process I will post pictures of my progress. Thank you again for posting my picture

looks like a good start! Bristol 27s are great boats. If you have a facebook account I have a bunch of pictures of the interior of mine that you can look at. I have the standard layout, but am actually considering rebuilding it this winter with the dinette layout... good luck!!!!

I will try to post a picture again. It is the inside looking aft. Quite a terrible mess.
