You might try googling Bristol 29.9 for sale and see what that does.

The hull on the 29.9 is solid fiberglass, so blisters are not much of a problem. The hull to deck joint is fiberglassed, then through-bolted every three inches all the way around, so it's very strong. The deck, but not the cabin trunk, is cored, so, like on any boat of it's age, it's good to look for soft spots - if any, they may be around the stantions or other deck fittings - not hard to fix, or harmful to the strength of the boat.We've sailed Paloma all over and through two Force 10 storms - she's a tough little boat.
Good luck in your search and be sure to get a good survey when you find the right boat.

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
