New to Sailnet
I learned to sail in Florida 3 decades ago and have been to the Bahamas one trip otherwise short distances on the Treasure coast with 18' catamaran, Pearson Ariel and some 41 Out Island time.
With a new (old) aquisition I am discovering the internet boards are a plethora of information and advice.
I recently aquired a 1970 Columbia 34-2, needing cleaning, odds-n-ends, mainsail, engine tune-up, and I suspect 1 little part to rejoin the gooseneck.
I have put out queries RE: the possibility of anyone with a complete gooseneck from this era of Columbia possibly providing me a photo that I might be assured of what it is I may need. Otherwise I have calculated what I will have a machine shop make in order to clean up the connection and provide full movement.
I look forward to sailing her into shape.
