Columbia made a trailer-able 26 ... i have the fixed keel model built from 1969 to 1976
possibly the largest below decks 26 I've been aboard ... and at 6'4" headroom was a big concern points well sloop rig easy to single hand especially if you add a furling head-sail and halyards to cockpit.She takes big wind (have sailed in 40 + mph) for her size. She is heavy 7000 lbs dry and empty. the outboard is mounted in a well originally but many guys went to transom mount which is fine except in a heavy following sea. can be used for live a board but would need to add grey water and black water holding tanks.
