I am new here so I'm not exactly sure how to send a message, but I saw your comments that you've got a Columbia 26 also and are planning to do the Ha Ha. That's great! I have a friend up here who is planning on doing it also, we shall see if I'm ready for it at that point in time. How long have you been living aboard? I bet it's nice in SD! I'd love to be in warmer weather. What kind of outboard do you have? I have so many questions! Thanks for reaching out.
