Re: Anyone taken a Columbia 28 offshore?

I have been off shore in a trip Columbia 26. We sailed south out of Key West into a lively gulf stream with a 15 knot wind opposing the stream, nice 10 to 15 foot swells. Took them on the beam in a full moon for about 8 hour out and back on shake down cruise. She handled fantastically. My own boat is 1965 Soverel 28 and she is very cummfy out there. Most of the production sail boats from the 60's hold their own in an offshore situation.....I find.
