Re: Got a plastic classic?

Looks like it could be an ABI windlass.

Thanks!


Looks like an ABI/Plath bronze windlass. We have one that looks similar on our Rafiki. I'll try and post a pic over the next few days. Great windlass btw. Ours is double-action, single speed. Has never let us down.

Plath still shows the windlass on their site. Looks like they are a custom machine shop that will build you one: RC Plath Windlass Photo Gallery

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Well I wish I hadn't seen this boat, because now I want to buy it! Great 1963 Cloumbia 26 sailboat
because it looks to be in good shape and makes a great little California coastal island cruiser, and I have a galvanized trailer in excellent shape it will fit on. I know these boats well and they are tough and sail well. And pretty roomy too. I'd love to start a collection of the old Columbias, but I don't think I can push my luck that far at home! If you know someone who might be in the market for a trailer for this boat, PM me! Great pocket cruising boat /trailer combo for someone! for under 6k$ sheesh it's tempting...

Will do. The two designs are pretty similar but the Defender has about 1000# more ballast and less beam... and those S&S lines... Both are good ol' boats!

Well sure enough a Defender just popped up, but it is in an auction May 30. Looks like it may be a hull up restoration, but the Defender is nice boat IMO.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

It's a good thing I don't have a big piece of property and a bigger trailer or I'd be snatching up all the good, old, nearly free boats and starting a collection.

I have a big oil gooseneck trailer that will handle up to 25000 lbs. And 36 ft I could let you use .

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Well I made some good progress. I primed and painted the mast and boom. My wire rigging is all finished. The rub rail w/SS striker is complete. and the GPS and compass is all installed and wired. Also when I removed the wood block from around the rudder post I noticed three large holes where the factory tried to line up the hole, they say 3 times a charm? they finally got it, but left the holes, so I fiberglassed them in to add some strength and made a new wood block Attached Thumbnails

OK all you plastic classic lovers, we are up to 64 folks in, but still need more photos and more folks... my wife still won't let me get the mug that says "I'm the captain!"
