About this Sailboat:
A fine 30ft cruising boat. “YOLO” is a 1978 Bristol 29.9. I purchased her in May 2010 on Lake Superior as a charriot that would take two young adventurers over 4500 miles and end in St Thomas. She is a solid reliable vessel and fully decked out for the next cruiser to take over. She has spent all but the last 5 months of her 33 year life in fresh water.
