Re: looking to buy a 1969 columbia 36 footer
Thanks for your reply though much of what you said I am already aware of. My questions was with in relationship to this model of boat. I had just seen the boat the other day and doing research on that type of boat.
Engine is non issue even if it doesnt work, it could easily be repaired by my friends who are Aux Machinists who are experts in diesels. Plus I can always use an outboard (it has mounting for such)
As far as boating courses, just side note, basic watches I stand include helmsman and also lookout.
