Bristol 32

My 1979 Bristol 32 went trough hurricanes Irma and Maria here in St. Thomas. I need to replace all my standing rigging. I’m missing a spreader. I’d like to know how I could get another one or get dimensions to make a new one. Also, what engines would easily fit as a replacement? It currently has a yanmar 2qm 15 that I’m going to junk.

Re: Bristol 32

Welcome to Sailnet.

The standing rigging should be easy, Any rigger can do that. If you have one spreader, just have it copied. As to the engine, a similar sized Beta would be a common choice. You also may be able to find a similar Yanmar like a 2GM. There may be one from a damaged boat that didn't get flooded that is being parted out.

Re: Bristol 32

A 2GM would also be lighter.

Re: Bristol 32

Also looking for spars (spreaders?) Our boat will soon be hauled to its new marina, but haven't found the spars. Looking for any sources for B32 or Universal M30 parts.

I know you don't use Facebook, but there is a guy on the Facebook Bristol group who is parting out a B32. Guy's name is Jerry Doe out of Myrtle Beach NC.

I'm going to access FB, so really appreciate that. Our's is a 1976 Hull # 367 (?) B32 Cutter with factory installed bowsprit and Universal M30. She's a real beauty and hope to splash her this summer.

Re: Bristol 32

I'm going to start with my engine. I have a Universal M30 diesel 24hp (5424) and need a water muffler. Can anyone recommend a size and brand for this engine. I'd also like to install a siphon break to keep water out of the cylinders via the exhaust, but the muffler should be large enough to accommodate this 3 cylinder. I have the fuel tank which will need to be cleaned, but also need recommendations on Racor filters. What would be the signs for an engine that has experienced overheating?

Re: Bristol 32

I used this one... https://www.centekmarine.com/product...inline-8-x-14/

Under my fuel tank. With a riser off the engine exhaust. The engine is below the water line, riser is required.

Re: Bristol 32

Here is a list of videos I have on Youtube for my B32. Look for the video "1968 Bristol 32 Cutlass bearing and PSS service part 1" 9 minutes in you will see my setup. The fuel tank and tank platform are removed.

Re: Bristol 32

Eric, I really appreciate this info! There's nothing better than pics to illustrate an install!
I think my boat once sailed in your area prior to my purchase.
