Bristol 19 (Corinthian)

The Bristol 19. or Corinthian. is the baby of the Bristol family.

It was created by Carl Alberg as a safe and stable daysailer that could be raced in a one-design class. It was built with positive flotation. which should keep it from sinking. and it's small enough to be towed with a decent-sized vehicle.

A hinged mast step was also installed to help with raising and lowering the mast when trailering.

More than 700 of the 19s were built from 1966 to 1980. so there should still be plenty of them around at prices that allow people of modest means to get on the water with style and in safety.

The Corinthian has a cuddy cabin with two bunks that makes it possible to overnight. but the accommodations would be the equivalent of very rough camping. There is a place for an optional porta-potty.

At. 2. 24 pounds. with 1. 00 pounds of ballast. nbsp;the 19 is heavily built for its size. as all Bristols are.

As might be expected. the 19 gets off to a slow start in light winds. but owners also say it's quick for its size once it gets moving.  They describe the Corinthian as a rugged and seaworthy daysailer.

“The Corinthian is very seaworthy. I did sail once in a whole gale across 14 miles of open water. taking perhaps a bucket or two over the coaming. one owner reported in an online posting in 2010.

The cockpit is not self-draining. but owners say they do not view this as a problem because of the positive flotation and the fact that it is a stiff. dry sailboat.

There is a motor well for a small outboard.

As with all older sailboats. have it checked out thoroughly if you are considering a purchase.

Conditions vary widely because some owners didn't do required maintenance. and even small vessels can require thousands of dollars in repairs and upgrades if they were neglected.

What the Bristol brochure said

“Comfort and convenience! Corinthian offers many ‘peace of mind' conveniences: positive floatation; large deep. dry cockpit; outboard motorwell in cockpit (optional) to eliminate backstrain and inconvenience in placing the motor. sliding hatch and cabin doors (optional) to provide “stand-up cabin space” and lock-up storage for sails and gear; good headroom in cabin to provide “playhouse” accommodations for children aboard; tabernacle mast-step to simplify rigging; plus ability to be trailered if desired. It all adds up to real value!

Simple rig…double maing sheet with traveler make her a joy to sail. Genoa gear. spinnaker gear. and tabernacle mast step are available as optional equipment. ”

Here are more photos of cockpit and deck. The cockpit has been left as is to facilitate using pieces for patterns and layout of replacement wood components - restoration mentioned in the listing.

I rapped on the deck with a plastic-faced hammer and found a range of sounds from solid to light - depending upon what's underneath. This could indicate either areas of less under-deck reinforcement or compromise in the laminate. Looking at the gel coat. there are only a few craze cracks at the gunwale and transitions to the cabin trunk. This would be a positive clue towards integrity. Better answers could be had with a moisture meter. I don't have one - nor am I a qualified boat surveyor.

While striving to give you as much information as possible. I encourage a likely bidder to come look and see if she's what you would like.
