Yeah, it's funny. Trying to use the IPhone to embed pics didn't work. I wonder why.

Re: What boat is this?

Well, I've been looking through sailboatdata.com and I would say that it is not the MK II.

Re: What boat is this?

I believe we have a winner! It appears to be the Columbia T 26.

Now, the next question is, what kind of a cruising boat is it?

Bye it's displacement ratio, I assume that it's too light or any serious cruising. It looks very lightly built.

Re: What boat is this?

Built like the proverbial brick outhouse, used in charter fleets down here in Australia in days gone by, enclosed waters are recommended, big little craft with separate head hence their charter history, most had 10hp Volvo.

The Mark II has a bubble top on a flush deck. Definitely not this one.

Re: What boat is this?

Columbia Mk II (Bubble Top) was a 34'.
Columbia's built in the 70's were well built in the day when they thought more of quality.

There were a number of Columbia bubble tops:

26.2
34.2
39.1
43.1, .3 and I assume .2
50
52
57

The DLR is a pretty poor way to assess how well built a boat is. Better is to use LOD, Beam and Displacement minus ballast. Using that it's not built that bad. Given its LWL and S/D it should do just OK for moving along.

The bigger concern to me would be the very shallow draft (just over 2').

What do you want to do with the boat?
If you are stuck in TN for a while then this might be a decent starter boat for local lake sailing. It was intended to be trailerable, hence the "T" in the name, the shallow draft and the 8' beam.
