I 've looked through the threads and found that Brewer's list on the comfort level doesn't show either of these two. I currently own and sail the Columbia
and am considering buying
the H28 and then my wife and I will decide. I don't think I can talk the seller into sailing her because her running rigging
needs inspection/replacement. The H is a 1966, same as Ola, the Columbia
. What does anyone know about this H? Could not find the specs for this modification and she seems a little more tender
upon boarding. She is an interesting build by Far East Yachts of Japan
: 3/8 mahogany diagonal planking on oak, a layer of canvas
in Resorsinol and finished with 3/8 mahogany longitudinal, bronze fastened. We regularly sail the California
coast, last sail out in Ola, following winds to thirty, seas to 6. My wife not happy, me, not so much either. But Ola seemed unconcerned, in spite of two controlled jibe attempts that got away from me.
Opinions about the H's hull
construction? Much of a difference between the comfort/sea ability?
My first sailboat was a 1958 Kingscruiser and I love wooden boats. Maybe even if they are "cold molded".
