I am looking at a Columbia 26 MK II in Hawaii and the funny thing is I am from Port Huron, MI. I love your site and have found so much great information. It sounds like you love your boat.
Do you know what other brands of boats the sails will be compatible with especially the spinnaker?
Does it have to be in Hawaii?
I am getting a larger boat for cruising and have a well cared for 26 MK II here in Holland, MI to sell.
She has 100% and 150% crispy head sails and a BRAND NEW mainsail (for a McGregor 26') with 2 full battens and one reefing point that increases the sail area by 9 sq. ft. (in addition to the original sails).
All of the teak is in very good shape, oiled not varnished.
A 15 hp. Chrysler mounts in the motor well in the cockpit so it doesn't cavitate; halyards, lazy jacks and down haul for the head sail all run to the run to the cockpit, wired for shore power, marine head, new water tank, water pressure, electic and manual bilge pumps and I made a smaller table to give more room in the cabin. Extra 12 volt outlets added, etc.
Boat is freshly painted and the bottom is in very good shape.
Finally, I may want to haul my new boat from Lake St. Clair to Holland, We can get better prices if we can give the driver a return job.
