#169 Owner Jeff Hazen



TI have enjoyed looking at your website this summer – thinking about boats….  I cruised on a B30 as a kid with my family, and Bristol was on the short list of good old boats when I started looking around for a boat myself.

 I’ve just recently purchased a B29, hull # 169.  The last one, if all the online data is accurate.  I live in southern Maine, and this will be my winter project.  It needs a modest hull repair, complete electrical rewire, and a holding tank.  The boat appears to be completely stock – it came with the orange cushions, Atomic 4, and the roller reefing handle for the boom – long since obsolete with the installed jiffy reefing.

 I don't know that I have the ambition to document as you have done - but I'd be happy to send along pictures of anything interesting as I get along.  In the meantime, here's a shot of "as is, where is".
