Re: 70 Columbia 26 MKII, thoughts?

I know this is a old post I am writing on. But someone might read it.
I just got a 1969 MK2, same boat. She sat on a cradle for 20 years !!
I got her free. She has NONE of these issues at all. Not a single crack anywhere on her. Good Rudder, 7 sails, mast, rigging, all kinds of gear and a built in gas tank for the outboard. Water tanks, holding tank. You name it.
Deck is not spongy, keel perfect, rudder perfect.
We are in Northern Michigan and she has snow sitting on her every year.
rain. you name it. So there must be something that happened to that boat.
Cant imagaine why everything is cracked. Mine is in perfect condition.
Just needs cleaned and painted. Only the wood cockpit seats rotted and a bit of teak trim around the bubble top.
Free would not even be a good price for that poor boat but I hope someone saved her anyway.
