I thought instead of makeing a dozen or more threads on diffrent questions i will just ask every thing on this thread. so i got the jib today and the furlling unit. i will unfurl it tomarrow. Winds picked up to 20+ knots today so didn't want to test it out in that.

I believe you have a Coronado there, not a Columbia, although both came from the same manufacturer after about 1970.

there were both a columbia 27 and a coranado 27. the same boat. there was a columbia 26 of that cabin style but the windows on your boat are columbia 27

According to the Columbia web site, that Columbia 27 was only built in Australia - I suspect it was the Coronado 27 built under license and used the better known Columbia name for marketing purposes.
