Hey, Paul -- There's a growing group of Columbia 22 sailors who are literally in the same boat. In addition to the advice you'll get here on SailNet (which is great!), consider also joining the dedicated Columbia 22 user group at groups (dot) yahoo (dot) com. Search "Columbia22Sailboats" (one word) and you'll find it. Let me know if you have any questions, as well.
See you there!

Columbia 22 improvements and upgrades
6 months into my C22 I am looking at my options.
Have already done new sheets, run the halyards to the cockpit, replaced the life lines, added a Bowmar hatch to the foredeck, jib downhaul and other odds and ends.
Am wondering what others are doing to make this nice little boat more seaworthy, comfortable and fun to sail.
