Columbia 28 - Oahu to Big Island

Aloha forum members,

I had a week long experience aboard a friend's Columbia 28. The boat performed superbly. She is a mid 70s boat with old sails but sailed well, was stable going to weather in 20-22 k and 8 ft seas and supported 4 of us for over 200 nm of fun.

Here's the story and pictures starting on page 3. I'm the author:

For any longer cruising or even just to make changes I'd add a bridgedeck and larger cockpit drains. Other than that she gets my recommendation as an inexpensive coastal cruiser.

Did you see the size of that Ono (Wahoo)?

Kind regards,

JohnL
