Columbia 23

Greetings all:

I looked at a Columbia 23 today- very cursory inspection. The hull appeared to be in fairly good shape with only one blister about 3" across. The gunwale was chewed up dramatically/wet/de-laminated in some areas all the way around the perimeter of the boat.

I am fairly mechanical and have decent carpentry skills and am looking for a winter project. A little work/skill building is acceptable, but a lost cause is not.

Are the gunwales (cap over the edge of the hull- in the event I have the wrong term) repairable or do they fall in the no-go category?

Thanks in advance!

They are repairable but you really want to put new glass inside and out - getting at the inside can be a challenge. For that boat I'd call it a lost cause.

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.
