Thanks, Fred

Yep, don't be shy - Marty & David are class acts (me - not so much!)... you can find my schedule on my signature link for "HG". As the weather warms up will be more cruising oriented as right now we are in Race mode until spring...

Let's see, the one for sale is the 1962 Columbia 29' i sailed her halfway up the inside passage over the summer and spent far too many hours on the old and failing volvo-penta mb2a gasoline engine. when i got back i pulled it out to install the md6b (almost the same engine but diesel) i have for it. I rebuilt the engine beds with tight grain fir and 3m 5200, drained the tank. Now the tank needs to be cleaned, and a return line run for the diesel. The stuffing box should be re-packed, and the new engine is ready to drop in. it has a complete wiring harness and panel with it that just needs to be bolted in where the old panel was.

other than that the boat needs it's hatches varnished, bottom paint, and a new toerail. Everything is cosmetic except the engine and the boat is sailable as is.

now for the good stuff: very solid, fullkeel/cutaway forefoot, handles like a dream in seas, and in general. 6' headroom, newer head, tons of storage, good batteries, bruce anchor, long berths (sleeps four adults comfortably) autopilot, chartplotter/depthsounder, vhf, stern anchor with 300' rode, many many extras.

recent survey

I love the boat, built thick and strong and designed wonderfully, But I have an Ericson 32' that is taking all of my time, so she needs to go.

I can deliver the boat aswell, and if you wait long enough i might just get that engine in.

Very fairly priced, I have kept a sharp eye on the NW market for a boat like this for over 2 years now, still kind of do, I got a good deal on it and I will pass that on.

I live in Olympia, Findthejake. Also in the education business, also investigating a liveaboard situation though not as serious as you seem to be just yet. Did you end up buying a boat? If not, give this a look:
28' Newport $9,900

It's pretty close to what I'll be looking for eventually.
