It's a tough old boat, just might want to check your keel bolts to make sure they are sound. I had one a few years ago (albeit in a lake) but would have taken it anywhere.

The hull on my Columbia Sabre is roughly 5/16 to 3/8" in some places.

help with columbia 28

well that seems pretty thin ...is that a common thickness for 28' boats?
and a question about my cored deck , it has some hollow sounding spots on the inside but its seems solid on the outside and around deck hardware...should I be worried?

If the nuts on the studs that you can see in that little bilge, are still close to original size your probably ok. What I did, was clean the nuts and area very good. Then put some epoxy in a little plastic cup about 2" deep. Then smush it down over the top of that nut, sealing it for good.

I had a core of the hull that was removed a foot or two from the keel. It was almost an inch thick! Up near the gun'l, probably 3/16 to 1/4 inch.

Thanks for the advice , thats a bit more reasurring, and I'll try the epoxy, that sounds like a good idea. question on your mast...were your spreaders welded to the mast ..every other columbia i have seen has this , is that safe
connection? And do you know anything about the decks on these girls...mine has some weird spots on the inside ...delamination maybe but the outside deck seems solid ...should I be worried ? Or should I just try to reinforce the deck ? Any suggestions are very appreciated ....thanks
