Having been on the hard for 10 years I started my search and found a 1968 Columbia 28, HIN “99”not a project, but I am wanting to do a few upgrades. I may have a lot of questions, not much sharing on some of the forums. Though I was asked by a Bene owner why I wanted to own “nothing but a pig boat”. Watch, he’ll be 20 miles out with a faulty joker valve, and not a bucket to be found.

Re: Newbie

Welcome to the forum halwenk. I believe your 28 is a William Crealock design which is a renowned designer. Pay no attention to a Bene owner.

Ha ha...I could have got really honest about boat snobs but did not want a visit from the mods when the midnight bell tolls.
