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

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: columbia 26' new to me

I think this is it. The good new is you have a 27 footer, not a 26.

Re: columbia 26' new to me

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.
