Bristol 26 parts

We bought a 1968 Bristol 26' last fall and just put her in the water. Having been covered all winter, we've discovered a few leaks topside. All are manageable, my forward hatch leaks like a sieve. Any ideas on where I might be able to locate one

Hey Jesse,
Jayhawk only posted 1 time, 2 years ago. I doubt if we will be hearing from him.

Jess - I would press hard to learn repair skills. Those yard fees will make owning an old boat, well, somewhat disagreeable.

Re: Bristol 26 parts

Not really sure what you are looking for. Is this for a Bristol 26?

BTW, your Sailnet name is very similar to another member (Maine Sail), that is prominent on this site. Might be confused.

B26 Sail plan, rig plan needed

Clarification. I want to get sails while in Florida or enroute to Maine, I need sail plan specs, rig plan specs or IRPJ dimensions so I can find sails to fit my B26. Thanks, Will

PS I've used mainesail since 1997-no plans to alter

Re: Bristol 26 parts

Jayhawk ,
welcome to owning a Bristol 26. Getting info about them is hard. It is as if this boat is the bastard child of Bristol Boats.
As far as hull # are concerened you must look everywer on the boat, draws, thier bottoms, back of cabinet doors, under setees covers etc. I found mine in the aft section of the cockpit there is a wood cover and there was a Bristol logo medalion with the number 3 on it.
I removed the mast stepping plate and found a 1971 penny on the inside ,Must be the commissioning year.
Try conntacting the Herrisoff museam in Bristol RI the should have drawings ? I am told that there is a couple of guys that worked for Bristol back in the day that are working for Bristol Marina in Bristol RI???? not confirmed
The up side is they are a strong boat but not very fast ,remember it is about the journey not the destination Good luck

Re: Bristol 26 parts

Ok brethren ,
I have the sail dimensions of my B-26 1974 if you want the sail dimensions.
fores'l ; I=32 ft, J=10.5',for 169 ft.sq,
Mains'l ; P=27', E=11.75' for 159 ft.sq. I have the fixed long keel not the shoal drafter but the Sail Area should be pretty much the same, no bowsprit of Boomkin on her (yet anyway) displacement is like 6000 lbs at last haul-out on travel-lift scale.
total sail area = 327 ft.sq. ; Sail area to displacement is like 16:1, D:L = 245,
(the forestay is 33.7 ft. long. ) i do not have the roller furling on her , it was way too troublesome hanked on foresal' can be changed out in a wind just dandy , so I prefer the safety of hanked on to the furler that liked to get jammed up just when I needed to reduce sail in a bad windstorm ,eh? Ok mates, then good luck on ya , eh ?
