    Hi Everyone, I am looking for the line drawings for the unicorn of Bristol Yachts, the mysterious Bristol 28' masthead sloop. I just purchased this boat and can find barely anything about it. Thanks!!

    Yes, but I can't read that one.

    Yup, its a hard one to find since only 8 or 10 of them were built. Best thing you could do is contact the Halsey Herreshoff design office and see if they could tell you anything. Since the boat was designed for Bristol Yachts, now shuttered, the drawings may be lost. There is a chance they could be stored at the MIT Maritime museum.

    That's a great idea. If push comes to shove, I suppose I can take info from the 29.9 and tweak it a little.
