Re: beached, for now

There's plenty of info to research. Good luck to you.

Re: Found This Bristol for Sale - Thoughts for New Sailors?

Agree to all. :D

Even if you don't have the budget to fix/repair/upgrade now, doesn't mean you won't be able to later. I know the desire to get in the water quickly and go sailing. I'm working on...

Re: Which ones have ship wheel/helm and no tiller?

I'd go with my own boat, a Nor'sea 27 aft-cockpit. It has a nice heavy tiller and built to live its life on the ocean. ;)

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

yeah, you don't need a lot of space to clean up. My wife finds it amazing that I shower and not even 5 min, I'm done. Don't need a 15-20 min shower. On a boat, there's good reason to conserve fresh...
