I dunno why, but I have an almost irrational fear of holes in the hull. But as I read more about the South Coast 23, it makes perfect sense. Apparently, this is one of those designs where the...

I'll have to get some photos of the bilge area, but picture a W where the sides are the hull and the center peak is the housing for the centerboard.

I just don't see how to get a non-hosed pump...

The crazing's no big deal. There are plenty of products on the market to handle that. Just make sure it's not from a weak/spongy deck.

Before you go moving bulkheads, make sure none of them are...

Good point, Sander. I didn't think of that. If I'm already on my 4th and last pump, things clearly aren't going to be neat and tidy anyway.

I'm still in the process of accounting for all the...

I was thinking of a Thirtsy-Mate hand pump as a backup to the manual, just b/c it's great in a rainstorm if the cockpit drains clog (seems to happen to me quite a bit.)

Hi All,

I'm redoing the bilge pump system for my 31'. C-31's don't have a lot of space between the sole and the hull, and the centerboard makes it an even tighter fit, so here's what I'm...

Speaking as someone very new to sailing and currently undertaking a rather large project resurrecting a neglected 31' Columbia, I can offer this advice:

Glad to know I'm not the only one.

I may take ASA 101 eventually. I've been around powerboats most of my life, and my father's an ex-Coastie, so I have the safety stuff covered pretty well.

I just bought two boats: A Columbia C-31 needing a fair amount of work and a Victoria 18 that just needs a skipper. Now I just have to learn how to...

Capt Bill... I envy your ability to trailer a boat of that size.

If your policy has a layup period, you will not be covered. ...

Columbia 31 Interior Pics?
