In most cases, I would agree that it's a matter of opinion. Like kitchen utensils or mousetraps.

But remember, by definition this guy was a "designer" of a "new and improved"...

Actually this new Raymarine MFD has WiFi and will allow you to see the display from an iPhone or iPAD. I haven't had much occasion to use it, but I know of one guy who saved putting a nav station...

Thanks, that's exactly the type of thing I'm looking to do, but was hoping to find one that had the wifi/iOS packaged as well, same box. I guess it's not critical, just would be nice. And really...

My main concern is safety at sea in rough weather. Under those conditions having traveller in the cockpit is a good thing (it's right there where you are) and provides an extra handhold when climbing...

I've just always found the traveller in the pit to be a hindrance moving about the boat. Drinks taste the same wherever you're sitting.

Re: Battery choices for offshore use

As do I. Is the one you're looking at modified that way already or is that also something you'll be doing?

Sorry- I thought you wanted best, not budget. Absolutely cheaper, but with your solar set up, MS did look at the predicted payoff of the fireflies and seemed that they would cost less over the...

What about the mid pit traveller? The one in NYC looked to be relocated to cabin top, but I recall that wasn't standard.

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

While I agree that the CSR/N is an oversimplification, I think that is probably a MORE gross oversimplification.

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Yep- and YOU have to be comfortable out there. I guess I'd say they're all seaworthy. I think you'd be splitting hairs between them all all day, but if you can find a B34 you like and is well found...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Oh- and many (most?) P35s have been repowered to diesel over the years as well, so you may have that going for you, too.

The capsize screening numbers on both are fairly conservative, so should...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Thanks for the time to address, Jeff.
I had noted the above in the line drawings. I will say that I've not noticed the wetness you describe in chop. Certainly a bit of water on the decks, but...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Jeff- I wonder if this changed over production times? My 68 has fairly thick tabbing and varnished mahogany throughout, and the Pearson Brothers have said that when they started out with the named...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

Unless you get a rebuilt and DIY. Then it COULD be worth it, but probably not.

Although- if you're going to take the darn thing around the world, and you get a well outfitted B34 for an all in...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

When it's down and going to windward- no bang. When it's up- no bang. The only time I've had it bang is when I left it down on a run by mistake. Good Old Boat showed a repair/replace this past...

But the benefit is that the A4s run forever, have a devoted following and a supplier of parts and information that allow you to maintain them fairly easily. Moyer Marine. And they drive down the...
