A melon with a dream...
Hello everybody... I am wondering if you have or have known someone who has taken a Columbia 28 offshore? I just purchased mine (a '69) in September. Originally I was just planning to stick to Puget Sound and up the Inside Passage, but of late I am coming to the conclusion I would like to take it out. Likely from Seattle down to Mexico, Panama, and then into the Caribbean. I would like to hear from past or present owners about their experiences with this particular boat. If there is anything to watch out for regarding the boat, anything to address before heading out, any particular sail configuration that works well... I don't know, whatever you've got.
