Any Columbia 10.7 Owners Here ?

Are there any Columbia 10.7 owners around here? I've found the basic information and manufacturer(s) history, but I'd like to get some personal experience opinions on this particular model:

What do you like and dislike?
How wide is the quarter berth?
What does the anchor locker look like? (I haven't found any pictures of that).
Does the head have a shower sump?

Thanks!

And I forgot the most important question: how does she sail?

That pseudo-full keel looks strange, and I don't know whether it helps or hinders pointing ability.

This is the boat I'm talking about, in case anyone's wondering.

Just got my 10.7 back in the water a couple weeks ago after 3 months dry dock. She sails very nicely - hit 6.5 kts in light air, very responsive rudder with tight turning radius, very roomy (aft berth quite wide) and there is a ton of stowage room. No shower sump, but I plan on using the cockpit shower any way. All in all a sweet, well-built cruiser.

Thanks

I joined the Columbia Owners Association group on Yahoo a little while ago. I just haven't posted to it. Do you own a 10.7, too?

No, but I used to own a Columbia 40.
