Beautiful! But there is one very bad thing. She's not sailing!

Good thick barrier coat on it too.

Getting it serviced up and antifouled now, and aiming to splash by 20th June.

Don, if you missed the link in the thread on monoculars, this is the one I ended up with, and I'm very pleased with it:

Fair winds all.
Wow, you got it! And with a bunch of great sails too! Bet you are dying to try them all out. Sounds great, congratulations! Thanks for the monocular link too!

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Purchased yesterday, put in the water this morning. Have built a list that will take 1/2 the GDP of any developing country (sorry, been a long day of shooting issues). All in all I'm really happy with it. I wanted a boat I could work on as therapy for the cubicle job. It's a 1978 36' Cabot

Wow, Cabot, that's a name I hadn't heard in quite a while. Don't know anything about them. Looks great! Looking forward to shots of all your refitting!

Yeah I'm still in shock. lol

Cushions and cockpit cushions are recent too.

Waiting on delivery of led nav lights to fit (.54 watt each, 2 mile spec), and the ablative to be blasted off before putting Trinidad SR on.

Only taken a couple of photo's so far, as I keep forgetting to take the camera to the yard.

Also I watched a boat get splashed here which made me drool - a Columbia 50.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Here is a pic of our $300.00 ebay 1966 Columbia 26. This was back in 2010 on the way to Baltimore to launch after a two year refit. We took her to the Exumas and back. We sold her in 2014 and last know location was the West coast of Florida. S/V Our Jenny.

Wow, she looks beautiful in that shot. Great little pocket cruiser isn't she? I had a 24 and now the 29!

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Sure do miss her. We are finishing up a '68 Tartan 34c now, launching in August for another trip south. I wish the Tartan was built as solid as the Columbia, she is a stout little boat. It was great to have enough head room for me at 6' 1". The link has tons of pics. We put in a watermaker, solar, wind, ssb. I used to say our little boat had everything but acreage..

That Tartan 34c is a great classic too! How about some shots of her too?

Beautiful job on the interior of that 26! And the Tartan looks like she is really coming along too!
