In 1964 Clint Pearson bought troubled Sailstar Boats. He renamed the company Bristol Yachts, and in 1968 introduced the Bristol Caravel. The boat could be purchased either with a standard layout with settee berths port and starboard, or with the dinette arrangement shown here, which supposedly will sleep five (though we wouldn't want to try sleeping in the "double" formed by the table lowered flush with the dinette seats, which is barely three feet wide). Another choice for new buyers was either a center-boarder (shown in phantom lines on the plan), or a fin-keel boat with a draft of 3' 6". Best features: The outboard well in the cockpit makes life easier for the helmsman when maneuvering in tight quarters. Worst features: A peculiarity of the centerboarder is her shallow rudder, necessary to keep it out of harm's way when negotiating shoal waters with board up. It raises the question of whether the rudder has enough area to provide good steering control. If so, why is the area enlarged for the fin-keel version? Why not, instead, cut wetted surface on the fin-keel version's rudder to improve performance?

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
