Re: Anyone taken a Columbia 28 offshore?
Hi , a dock neighbor of mine had a Columbia 28, years ago he and his wife did some short range cruising with it .Basically they took it 26 miles to Catalina Ca. and because at the time they didn't have much money they always anchored . Also they did the Newport to Ensanada race . But really I think you should treat cruising the boat like any other , inspect everything . Good luck ! Hey you will be going right by my front door , stop by for a beer .
