|tomwatt||Thanks! I'm a long way from being in the water yet, and even longer (and a lot more cash) from being in the kind of shape your boat is in. But I'll get there eventually (foolishly I plotted out the expense sheet for total cost projections - ouch).|

|tomwatt||I managed to pick up one of these lil' beauty's too. Mine's been sitting on the hard for a few years, needs lots of cleaning and refurb, but so far so good seems solid as a tank. These are such nice boats in a lot of ways. Not all that big, but a lot "bigger" (inside) than most boats this size.|

Unfortunately, though, the lazerette lid won't close when the motor is tipped up out of the water. The stern has a cut-out to accommodate the longshaft when on a tilt. I've seen some B24's with a similar transom cut-out; but I've seen others without... mine came with it and has the cosmetic appearance of being original, rather than a modification by a former owner.
P.S. glad you like the site

I had a Bristol 24 for about 8 years.
Loved it so much that when I bought a larger boat, it was a Bristol as well.

Bristol 24 questions
On your Jonah’s Charm site, saw that your OB can tip up out of the water, although the lazarette cover will not close all the way when it is. Have you modified the engine or the boat in any way to enable you to do this, or is that standard? What size (HP) is your engine? I have a Mercury 8HP 2-stroke long shaft on mine, and it will not tip up enough to get the prop out of the water.
Nice boat you have.
Would like to ask some more questions--please email me web at batchelerlaw dot com
