Re: The Trouble With Columbias

My response is along the same theme the trouble with my Columbia 26 mkII . . . she left me with a permanent grin from a wonderful weekend of winter sailing.

Your avatar is in better shape. A few months ago my brother asked if I would help him sell them. I posted here but that was before I went to inspect them. After going out to the farm and looking at them I realized they were lost to time and abuse. I have the pictures but there pretty sad.
As for now I have to deal with a sad part of my life and times. My brother recently lost his battle with cancer. The 41 center cockpit he built was home to him and his wife. He always said with the bow pulpit and dingy davits she was a 50 footer. They raised 2 children on her in Lake St Clair, Michigan, but now she sits there in her bubbled well waiting to see what happens next. I am not sure if my sister (in law) will be moving back aboard or selling her
Sorry for all the san news, but you asked about the molds

She said she will be selling her. The boat (Wind Star) is set up for living aboard, and has some very nice features. as any older boat there is work needed but the asking price should be around 40K

Just a quick post to all who may have read my past postings. Wind Star now has a new owner and will be given a new home in northern Michigan

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

I am buying a Columbia 8.7 this week. Any thing in particular I should be aware of. It is my first mono hull after thirty years of beach cats.

Perhaps a bit more participation and opinion on our boats might be a plus.

Hi! Did you buy the 8.7? We bought one in Oct '12 and I adore our boat. Very spacious and she just felt like home the minute we stepped on board and down into the saloon.

We are complete newbies, so can't help with questions...just wanted to say hi.

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

Yes we did, the previous owner was not a sailor and could not tell me very much. I have had it out twice and love it. Need to redo the non skid and paint the deck among other things. Spring Break is around the corner.
