Pros:
Cons:

Summary of Design;
Aft cockpit sloop. Fin keel, external lead ballast. Traditional/classic Bill Crealock design. Cabin layout has 2 quarter berths aft, dinette to port, galley to stbd. Head to port, nav station to stbd. V-berth in bow cabin.

Strengths:
Easy to sail. Stable & stiff in strong breeze. Tacks easily even in faint air. Good storage in aft lazarette. Backs exceptionally well under power due to location of prop above rudder.

Pros:
Cons:

we have had summerwind for five years (10/2004). she is a fun ship. we have raced her several times and she performs very well. we are novices and race to build confidence and technique for cruising, yet we have finished well consistantly.
crealock designed her well. she is a perfect wine-glass shaped w/fin keel and spade rudder. turns on a dime and tracks pretty well on a passage! the short stick gets you under critical bridges. the ballast is solid cast lead, one of the nicest shapes i have seen.
the accommodations are very well laid out for a 10.5 beam boat. we like the large galley and nav sta./office. the boat was offered in kit form by columbia so each boat is finished off differently. our boat has a 2" thick solid teak sole that is completely removable!
the drawbacks are: our boat has never leaked at the deck-hull joint as others have, it is narrow compared to todays standards, the large ports leaked, we replaced ours, alot of the wood has a fake finish.
i would love to contact other owners of columbia 36's.

Pros: Solid fibreglas hull. Handles easily. Lots of cockpit room.
Cons: Sub-sole compression post is wood - prone to rot and difficult to replace.

Sleek cruiser, built like a tank!
