What is it?

Hi,

There's a boat for sale on my dock. Not interested but I was wondering what it was.it looks like a fine and capable boat under the dirt. I'd say it's maybe 36ft long?

Re: What is it?

I don't think so Ron. The Columbia has 3 small ports plus the larger one per side - the pics show 4 smaller ones a side.

But I do not know the correct answer.

Re: What is it?

Right you are, Brian.. in fact the larger port isn't 'quite right' either..

Stumped, then....

Re: What is it?

looks more islander. the large window has been replaced--that is not original. hull to deck connection is not columbia, more along islander lines..

Re: What is it?

My first thought was also Islander, without the trim around the window.

Re: What is it?

Early Islander 37

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Maybe, but the 1966 Islander 37, according to SailboatData, has 3 small ports a side, not 4. Definitely the correct era though.

Re: What is it?

Those ports don't seem to match so I figured one had been added later.

Re: What is it?

I am guessing Island Packet 35, sure could use some TLC.
