Bristol B27 seaworthiness

Looking for everyone's opinion. If you have any knowledge or experience, please respond...

I am interested in purchasing and using a 1975 B27 as a liveaboard to cruise inland, atlantic ICW, erie canal and then Bahamas, then panama canal and ultimately to SF Bay. Is the B27 (in good condition of course) capable of that goal, assuming I am? Singlehanded and possibly with one crew at times. Diesel inboard and fresh sails/rigging.

Re: Bristol B27 seaworthiness

Well,

Yes.


I grew up on a few Carl Alberg boats, if all is in good condition then yeah. great coastal cruisers and limited ocean passages, so 27 ain't that big, but...

yes.


Pix just for the hell of it:

Re: Bristol B27 seaworthiness

Met a guy cruising the Pacific in one. Last I heard he was in New Zealand. Not very big but if you know what you are getting into, go for it.

Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
