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.
