Hello from Naples, FL

Hello everyone! I am Jason From Naples. I have a 1970 Columbia 26 Mark II. She is my first S/V, and her name is Survivor. Before the purchase of my boat on St. Patricks day 2011, I have never stepped foot on a sailboat. It has been an amazing experience learning and planing my near adventures. In a few months I will be sailing up to Knoxville Tn. From my research the Tenn-Tom waterway seems the way to go. I am going on a really small budget, so it should be fun! Anyway this has been an amazing site for learning and seeing what others have done.

Re: Hello From Naples Fl

Welcome to the forum. I sail with a friend on his 26. Nice boat. His is outboard powered which might be a bit of work going up river.

The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

Re: Hello from Naples, Fl

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I think the Columbia 26 is one of the roomiest of her size.
Good to have you posting here.
kind regards,
