Let's Get Something Going Here
I own "Pairadice", a C-28. Her hull # is 464. She is currently in a slip on Lake Norman in the Charlotte, NC area but we intend to have her trucked to the coast next year.
I've only owned her for a month and have been working steadily on various projects. As a novice sailor (this is my first sailboat), I can't really offer any serious input on sailing characteristics to anyone thinking about buying a Columbia. I can say, however, that I really enjoy every trip and am constantly learning as I go.
Projects include but are not limited to:
Wiring; painting the cockpit, decks and cabin trunk; sewing cushions and repairing sails; plumbing (redoing the entire system); cleaning; and various others.
I'd like to see other Columbia owners or prospective owners post info of their boats and projects. Maybe we can get a decent source of info going here?
