Columbia 28 question

We are new to sailing and have recently puchased a Columbia 28. We are learning all about it and there are a few questions about it if anyone can help me out with and/or have any advice and information It would be greatly appreciated. My question is across from the gages where you sit there is a brass hole and the seat is designed to allow that hole to be exposed, what is that for? Also just below that on the vertical, about where your calf would be there is and outlet of some kind. what is that for? thanks for helping, Kat

That sounds like the pivot and electrical connections for a tiller pilot. Pictures would help.
Have fun with your new boat.

Thumbs up Columbia 28

Congrats on the new boat. I have a 1967 Columbia 28 and have replaced quite a few of the systems on her in the last two years. We sail her out of a maeina on the Pax river in MD. Feel free to ask any questions about your columbia and i'll see if i can help.

I recommend you find and download the owners manual for your boat. It is easily accessible with a google search and will have schematics of all your electrical, plumbing, standing rigging and all that jazz. For your engine specs do the same thing. Its good to have manuals.
