The boatyards in RI definitely make and made some good stuff.
Here's a new Bristol Built boat that just made the crossing:

I have owned a Bristol 24 and presently have a Bristol 30 (1972).
I have nothing but good things to say about them.

|SVImpunity||The Bristol is a fine sea going boat. Before we bought the boat our Bristol 40 Yawl had been across the Atlantic & back, over to American samoa & this year will circumnavigate Vancouver Island. The 40 has very large cockpit drains at the aft end & smaller drains to take care of rain water at the forward end.|

Bardo's Bristol 29 for sale?
Does anyone know if Bardo still has his Bristol for sale? I tried sending him a personal message but as a new member to this group I need to have five postings.

Yes, I have heavy duty seacocks on all my thru hulls. The problem I mentioned has to do with the 35.5 design. The cockpit drains through the engine compartment and the hull, so you cannot close the seacocks when offshore. Otherwise the cockpit would not drain at all. This, I think, is a design flaw. When offshore, I close all the seacocks and only open them when necessary to drain the sinks or flush the head.
The next time I have the boat hauled I will try your suggestion for greasing the barrel. Thanks.

We have made several offshore trips on our 35.5, but no ocean crossings. I respect the comment that offshore is 75-25 with the boat being less important. However, I worry that my 35.5 cockpit would be very slow to drain in heavy weather and that I cannot close the through hulls for those drains. Also, the anchor well takes on a lot of water, which, with my Hyspeed 510 windlass, drains into the bilge through the hause pipe . Could these be modified? Perhaps.
That said, I have been sailing my 35.5 for ten years and more than 15,000 miles. I have 100% faith that she is a better boat than I am a sailor.

I read that your bristol 29 is for sale.
Has it already been sold? If not, can you please send me a detailed list of specs and as many photos of the boat as you have?
