Hello Bristol owners

I have an embarrassing problem. I can't find the 'plug' to the keel after winterization. Is this just a home depot supply job or is there a site to get the dimensions or find a replacement plug?

Hello dreamer1842,
I do not own a Bristol, but we have admired their design and sailing ability. May I ask about the keel plug? Where is it located? Is it factory installed or a modification? Is it used to release any trapped water that might be between the fiberglas and the ballast? Just interested......
A surveyor for one of our previous boats had suggested using a garboard plug in a rudder that had taken in some water. That was to be a temporary measure.
