Re: [campernicholson] Bristol Fashion
- Hmm..... it´s funny with these sayings and phrases. I don´t know about you all getting compliment´s and fine word´s when arriving a new habour.....i think you do! and so do we. I guess after all these years with a lot of new built boat, these old classic boat is a rear sight, and not seen wery often. One of my friends also a sailer say that just comming on board Addiena seems like comming on bord a much larger boat, no movement because of the weight of the boat and a deck hard as a concret floor.PeterFrom: glenn rainey <nimbusmail@...>

Subject: [campernicholson] Bristol Fashion
I used to live in Bristol and never thought about the term 'Bristol fashion' when I was there.
I found this link:
...says I to the girl, "this is neither ship-shape, nor Bristol fashion."
.... "Said when Bristol was in its palmy commercial days - and its shipping was all in proper good order."
