Columbia 22 project help
Hi all, I think I finally found a solid project that fits my budget. Columbia 22 1970, I'm looking for advice to things that could incur a massive expence or technical ability beyond what i can learn. I work in the Marine world and am pretty good at figuring things out especially marine application.
The good: solid hull no blisters recently resealed keel, looks like new keel bolts stainless, bulkheads and area below mast doesn't look bad, mast step secure.
The projects : top side leaks a little fresh water, may need new sails at some point but don't look too bad, engine mount needs to be mounted, mast/boom hardware looks like its rusting and would need to be replaced and repainted, interior has been gutted but recently painted blank slate, standing rigging may need to be replaced. May need to do the sandwhuch on bulkheada to reinforce with research ive done on these. No electrical system. Boat is held /transported on a custom built wood cradle.
Just looking for any resources or personal experience with the projects, fixing up one of these boats or just your opinion of them I'm having a hard time on the Google finding more than a just few resources. I'll try to get pics up soon.
