Columbia 8.3 for sale

Check out the Data

I have for sale a Columbia 8.3    She will be undergoing some refitt this winter.   This will include repairs to the stern rail, a new head liner and fairing some ports of the hull that were repaired after a grounding last summer.    She has a new Bluesea electrical panel, dodger,and is very very spacious.   Decks have been recently painted and a new companionway door built.     I will let her go cheep before I do the refit.   In the spring this boat will be a precious commodity and I am sure will sell fast.

Current suggested value $4000

Transom and knees

Transom cut out of the laminated mahogany.

I am ready at any time to set up the molds but I am going to take some more time and make some of the other components so that when it comes time to set things up it will be a minimum of time. Knees, thwarts, oar lock bases, floor boards etc.

Steam box for bending the laminations for the 6 knees that are required.  Cold bending resulted in a lot of broken pieces of oak.   Thanks for the advice Greg Rossel

Molds complete

The 7 molds are now completed with all the required marks on them. The transom has been splined and glued up an ready to be planed flat. The inner and outer stem pieces are squared up and need the bevels roughed in. I tried to laminate the knees but even at 3/16 thickness they broke.   I think I will go with sawn knees in oak or mahogany.
