If one thing is off.....

Then there is LIKELY a lot more that you can't see...

I have a Columbia 28 MKII

Find a friend with a moisture meter and go over every inch of deck.... take a dead head - rubber hammer and tap it looking for deck/hull damage... inspect it REAL CLOSELY...

I truly love the old 28... it's classic plastic... a real clorox bottle with style... but there are things wrong with it and it will take $$ to bring up to par.....


go look - be crawl over and inspect every inch... really give the rigging a solid check..... have some ideas of what it will cost to fix....

A $500 deal may cost you $5K more to bring up to par... or it might cost nothing... !!!!!

good luck...
