Re: Painting My GOB

My Columbia rolled off the line in 1961. There are still plenty of these old Columbia's around. With solid hand laid up hulls and conservative engineering they've held up well and represent a great...

Re: Painting My GOB

Barquito,
Nice looking boat first off! What's your reasoning with brightsides use on the Topsides? Just for touch up reasons? I've found Brightsides to be completely intolerant of water contact....

Re: Painting My GOB

We painted our 1961 Columbia 29 MkI decks 3 years ago. I think that is that part of the boat you are talking about here. I used Interlux's epoxy primer, and at a few peoples recommendation...

Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

I work for big business but it sure doesn't pay big! So I just learned over the years to spot a good deal. Equally important is having the cash on hand to pull the trigger on the deal when it comes...

Re: Early Columbia 29

From what I've been led to believe, the MkII is with the heavier ballast. The easiest quickest way to tell the difference between the two models is to look at the cabin top. If it has two port lights...

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore

Ok I wasn't sure how much maintenance and fiberglass work you'd been privy to experience. Sounds like you know what you're getting yourself into.

I had a Formosa 35 that I bought for $1100 that...

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore

Re: Yet another first boat thread

Re: Which type of plywood ?

I may be wrong but shouldn't marine grade plywood have waterproof glue and not "water resistant"? Douglas fir might not be bad for a table inside the boat but if you use it outside I've heard it will...

Re: Yet another first boat thread

Re: First "big" boat--MANY questions

I agree $10k can get you a whole lot of boat, but it can also be a whole lot of problems if you buy one in poor shape. I keep my boat 40 min from my house and I think that is even a bit far. The...

Re: Are These Winches Salvageable?

I've also seen boiling parts in lemon juice either straight or cut with some water as a great way to clean. Haven't tried that yet either but worth thinking about and of course non toxic.
