The debate on cored hulls is not a place I wish to go...again, however I would add there are many benefits of a cored hull. I guess it really comes down to your preferences. Just type in cored hulls here and you will see all the debate.

We picked the Tartan primarily because it was sail ready, the particular Bristol we were very interested in needed some work, not to say our boat didn't need work, but that Bristol didn't even have ports installed at the time of sale, it did have a pretty nice paint job though

I grew up sailing on a Bristol 35.5 with my Aunt & Uncle so allot of my desire for the boat was to continue those fond memories I had aboard their boat.

I'm not as familiar with the T34, but I believe the Bristol 35.5 and the T37 are more similar than what you are considering?
