Here is a gorgeously restored Bristol 29:

If you scroll down the list of pictures you will see the latest including interior shots. They have done some very traditional things--using bronze exterior and brass interior fittings wherever possible. They have air conditioning installed under the vee berth, and from the size of the enormous galley sink, the owners must be using a sump to handle drainage. I would love to see close up detail of how they handled the edge of the hull and the toe rail. It looks like they have installed some sort of finishing strip. I'd love to know more details. As you can see from this photo, they have fashioned teak bases for everything that bolts down to the deck. Lots and lots of brightwork; lots of varnishing.

Here is a shot of the interior: I really like the drawers and chart table next to the companionway, and the athwartship slats added to the cabin overhead.
