LOL at a lot of the posts. My brothers and I had a 26 foot 1970 Columbia for a while that our dad bought before he passed away. We ended up selling it a couple years ago sadly-- all I can say is that the one thing I learned about boating is that you either need to either be prepared to spend a lot of dough to buy a newer boat and pay someone else to do the maintainence or you need to be very dedicated to doing the work yourself. Thank a lot to Concordia and Yachtie for sharing. Those are both beautiful crafts and I have a lot of respect for you guys for keeping them in such gorgeous shape-- I can tell it is a labor of love.
