weephee is on a distinguished road
I have read several of these types of posts and no one ever mentions the Columbia sailboats as an option to really anything. Just wondering why they are never considered. I have an 8.3 that I think may fit the bill. Am I missing something wrt the Columbia sailboat

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
weephee,

A Columbia would fit the bill too. Sometimes we posting get the more common brands, forget about the lessor common brands. Columbia is probably one, Ranger, San Juan has a 28, 30 and 34. I do not recall the Ranger offerings when built......

Ranger produced a nice line of boats in the 70s/80s. Also remember there were two Rangers... the California ones and the Kent WA boats too. - very different.

The California Rangers offered were pretty much all Mull designs, with a cruising and a racing line. Under the Cruising line were similar looking models at 23,26,29 & 33 feet. Pretty decent sailing boats, the 26 is a bit of a PHRF sleeper. The so called Racing line featured the 28, 32 and 37, also by Mull, but with racier gear, a bit less room and with IOR based tumblehome hull designs and more extreme higher aspect rigs. Pretty boats, though. My brother owned a 28 for a time, it was a real broach machine in our typical heavy breezes where we lived at the time.

The Kent company is STILL in business! The little Ranger tugs you see floating around here, that is the SAME company, same place on HWY 99 north of Federal Way Wa.! The little Minto sailing dinghy is still available in IIRC Gig harbor now, and a place in BC. Some of the line is still around.

The R26 sailboat is a sleeper! Rated well for what it can do too! There is a local one here in Seattle that cleans our clocks for the most part. We also have one in our club, but they are not up to snuff on sailing it yet. but it did do well in the Bellingham area for a long time from what I have heard about it.
