I love the new boat

So some of you know but ill just say it. i got a free 27' columbia. I got sails and motor for it. So i took it out the other day and every thing went smooth. and went out again today. This boat is way better then my 16'. i was out in 15-20mph winds and 3ft waves sometimes 5ft. I had full main and sailed around for 3 hours nice and comfortable didn't take one wave over the bow. It was amazing. speacail thanks to capt rizzo for the main sail. With out it today woulnd't have happend. This boat sails so nice and smooth. This makes me love sailing even more.

SBL-

You're a young dude. It would have been very easy for you to settle for being an "X-box Warrior" like a lot of guys your age.

It's wonderful to see you getting out there, and Doing It instead of sitting on the couch.

Please PM me with a list of parts you think you need for your boat. I'll go through my gear and see if I have anything that may help you.

Huck, good to see you getting out and enjoying your new-to-you boat! I am also happy that the mainsail fit your boat and that you are able to make use of it. It wasn't doing me any good sitting in my attic! I still want a pic and you need to change your signature to reflect your new boat!!!

Bubblehead, you are the man! Huck is a good kid and I am thrilled that you too are willing to help him out!
