    Hello Don,
    I am studying up on sailing NORTH from SoCal. I am currently in Berkeley - planning for the trip down --and back!

    You have a columbia 26 and I noticed you commented on at least one Sailing North thread. I have a Columbia 10.7.

    I thought I would reach out and say hello.
    Best,
    Moe

    Hi Don,
    Not sure you'd be interested or Fb at all, but I just started a Nor'West 33 owners group for people who have or are interested in the boat:
    (It won't let me post the url, so just search for Nor'West 33 Harbor)

    Pretty new so only 4 members so far, but of course it's destined to remain small!

    By the way, with you being a Moderator do you have any advice why all the pictures I try to post on this forum are upside down? Don't have the problem elsewhere.

    They moved the lower shrouds out with the cap shrouds with hull number 9- guess who has hull #8! I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like you could run the jib sheets inside the shrouds since the tracks are mid deck- if desired anyway if you only roll it out to 90% or so, something I will probably play with.

    Be sure to give me a heads up if you're ever coming up to the Bay Area!

    The first two months of ownership were on the hard doing barrier coat (YUCK!) which it didn't really need but since it's my 'forever boat' at least I'll never have to deal with it again. I've only been out a few times now but I'm starting to find the sailing ability of these boats is true. I don't have a ton of experience but her pointing ability, especially for a full keeler, is uncanny. I'm pretty confident she can outpoint my fin keel-spade rudder Columbia 28 which was no slouch! She sure reverses like a drunk rhino though- LOL!

    If you're ever up this way I'd love to take you out on her! Also sailing the Channel Islands is on my bucket list so we will hopefully be down there some day. You'll probably find it interesting that I just helped a friend sell a Columbia 29 MK I. I'll probably be going out with the new owner on it (we were going to last week, but the shift cable broke!) and I'm eager to see how she compares to my 28.

    Best wishes,
    Jim
