Bristol 38.8 Ted Hood design

I am looking at the above boat and have been impressed with many aspects. I have searched this site and found some information here but haven't found anything that speaks directly to the pros and cons of the Ted Hood keelboard design. I would appreciate comments re: pointing ability, maintanence, noise while in the down position etc.

Thanks in advance, Wannabe4

Also look at the Wauquiez 38 of the same vintage. Same basic hull fitted out differently. Both are great boats.

I have now read just about everything I can find online about the Bristol 38.8 and almost all information is very positive. But I haven't been able to find anything re: noise from the centreboard as the boat rolls, especially downwind.

Can anyone comment on this? John Drake are you out there?

Camaraderie, I'll check those posting rules, thanks.
