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).

Nice boat you have.

Would like to ask some more questions--please email me web at batchelerlaw dot com

Hi Wayne:

Saw your note on the B24.

The motor I have is a JOHNSON 15hp (electric everything). It's a great motor for the B24, in the sense that it can push through a significant chop without any strain or loss of speed.

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.

Cheers,

Martin

P.S. glad you like the site

SOUNDBOUNDER 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.
