This note is for all owners and lovers of older boats.

Let's stay in touch and share our insights about older boats. I especially like the Columbia 26 MKII. Mine was built in 1969, and I took ownership in 1987 and have been sailing her ever since.so I am in the process of re-habbing it. Special areas of interest: The Rudder and rudder shaft must be replaced, I must build a new forward hatch, and I plan to replace some of the zinc plated nuts on the keel bolts. If anyone else has similar challenges, let's exchange ideas.
