Thanks Jeannette!

Will,
It is the real thing. You can see the burlap bags in the middle photo. Also, if you click the Steel Point link, you will see the Columbia tied up at the Bloom Brothers docks.

To all that have viewed these pics of the Columbia. I appreciate your positive comments. I operate the Columbia For The Hillard Bloom Shellfish Co. On daily bases and she is an exceptional boat.
