Have recently moved into a CS 30 and can't help but compare everything to the Columbia, good or bad it was (and still is I'm sure) a wonderful and spacious design.

Well, sort of. They guy had sailed around the caribbean for few years with the boat...apparently liked to fish too. It sat in a bay not too far from my house called "Goodmans Bay" for over a year. In inquired, got in touch and found out he was leaving it...gave him some money and that's it. He, unfortunately, had not gotten a sailing permit from the Bahamian Government either so I've had to work with them (still am) to get it registered here in Nassau.....
We're making progress...slow but progress.

Wow, looks pretty rough. Is that a crate engine? When you say abadoned, you mean literally abandoned in the Bahamas?

Nice to compare Columbia 36's with other, too.

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

Just found an awesome downloadable file from Good Old Boat PDF files in their "Boat Reviews" section that can be purchased.
They had insightful article on Columbia 33 & 36'....which states that the 36' had a cockpit sole access to the engine compartment! Does anyone else have that on their boat? I've not, but was seriously considering making my own.....

Re: The Trouble With Columbias

RedneckNpaaradise, Yea if You are doing a restoration, please take pics and vids if you can and keep us informed as how you are doing. A lot of us are in the same boat, mine set 10 years in a field with the companion way hatch torn off. I got her with about 18" of water in the cabin and close to 100 wasp, (mud daubbers) nests. Nice to know I am not alone spending hour after hour cleaning! Mine is a Del Rey 24, 1965 and is a knock off of an Islander 24 bahahma which the Columbia Contender was also knocked off of. Good luck on restoration.
