I think there is something amiss here. Columbia made three 24' models in the 1960s, but none in the 1980s.

any one have a columbia 24 or have had one?
my wife and I are going to look at a 1980 columbia 24 tomorrow and would like a little insight on any problem areas or concerns. I did some research on google but I cant find too much information about the boats. I found the columbia community web site but I found it difficult to navigate to find any suggestions on concerns or things to look out for. one thing I found interesting is the ad for the boat mentions a inboard gas engine but everything I read online says they only had a outboard mount.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
