    Also.. I own a mooring in South Portland, Maine. An interested sailors asked me,,, and I am agreeable,, to let the buyer use the mooring for the 2008 season. I will need to get some money for the use, as the permit must be paid etc.. or .. the buyer can use the mooring use as part of the buying process.

    My Bristol is not perfect, there are a few projects on the "to do" list. She is a great sailing/cruising boat. Heavy, seaworthy,,, real blue water boat.
