Re: The Trouble With Columbias

We're new to sailing and purchased a Columbia 28 last month. Been out three times now what a blast--lots of tacking on the Delta so we're thankful it has a self-tacking jib.

Previous owner has been giving us lessons and even fixed a few items that weren't working properly.

I'll definitely be asking a ton of questions as we get to know the boat a little better.

Mike

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

Just rescued a 68 36' Columbia....completely toasted from abandonment....so complete rebuild. Removed 1 1/2 feet of water, 6 years of abandoned clothing and misc junk, drying out sole, removed torn jib and emptying out storage compartments. Partial gutting of interior (trashed stove, head doors, sink, ice chest, etc etc.....) Am seriously considering removing/replacing port lights (some broken, others leak). Just received new/old Palmer 26 hp inboard for instillation. Should be interesting project.....

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

You should post some pics... might inspire me to do something with our '69 Columbia 28.

The only thing I need to do in the near term is find a new main sheet fiddle block, sheet, and whatever the other block is called that all attach to the traveler/car. I think it's a 4:1 system, but i'm a total noob and may be wrong... Ours may be original and it has moss growing on it, lol. Still works but want to upgrade to something with more moss resistance.

Good luck with the project...

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

RedneckNpaaradise, Yea if You are doing a restoration, please take pics and vids if you can and keep us informed as how you are doing. A lot of us are in the same boat, mine set 10 years in a field with the companion way hatch torn off. I got her with about 18" of water in the cabin and close to 100 wasp, (mud daubbers) nests. Nice to know I am not alone spending hour after hour cleaning! Mine is a Del Rey 24, 1965 and is a knock off of an Islander 24 bahahma which the Columbia Contender was also knocked off of. Good luck on restoration.

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

I agree with the others. Need to see pics. If there are no pics, then it never happened.

Nice to compare Columbia 36's with other, too.

Thumbs up Re: The Trouble With Columbias

Just found an awesome downloadable file from Good Old Boat PDF files in their "Boat Reviews" section that can be purchased.
They had insightful article on Columbia 33 & 36'....which states that the 36' had a cockpit sole access to the engine compartment! Does anyone else have that on their boat? I've not, but was seriously considering making my own.....

Wow, looks pretty rough. Is that a crate engine? When you say abadoned, you mean literally abandoned in the Bahamas?
