I just wanted to thank you for not buying
Westwind (the Columbia
36). I was able to convince the sellers to finance my project boat
which keeps my working capital free for the necessary repairs
. Nothing too serious thus far. I will most likely be posting
here shortly if anyone is interested in the progress of this great vessel.
To date, we've gotten rid of that eyesore dinghy
you see in the above photos and replaced it with an 8 foot Walker Bay. We moved Westwind to Waianae Small Boat
Harbor and have started cleaning
her up a bit. I won't be ready for a haul out
until October, so we're just focusing on the interior
at this point. Engine
runs great and we've had her out sailing 3 times in winds up to 25mph. So I was pleasantly surprised as to how well she's handled herself thus far.
