So here is the deal.i just bought this columbia 50.its like my 10th sailboat. I plan to explore the Caribbean for a few yrs.then the south pacjfic.and eventually circumnavigation the globe.there are a few things I need to do to this boat,but it is not a project boat.its a pretty nice boat.i am working and saving money,so it's hard to find time to tinker with boat.if someone would jump right into my plans,that would be can have the easy to get along with.this boat has already circumnavigated the globe several times.
