After joining the Bristol owners Facebook group, I found a post about the builders plaques that were originally installed on the Bristols from 1968-1973. Now even though the Egress never had one I contacted Rodger at Bristol Bronze as he makes the builders plaques. He also makes Bronze replacement fittings. He was extremely knowledgable about all things Bristol, as he owns a original Herreshoff S boat from the 1920’s. We spent over 45 minutes on the phone as he gave me a history of the Herreshoff manufacturing history and the Bristol Yacht Company history. It was fascinating! I could have easily listened to him all day, but alas he had another builders plaque to build…. So her she is…. Ready to class up the joint!
