"Hey guys! Do any of you have a wooden boom? This might be a silly questions lol but the boat I just purchased has a wooden boom but it is bare (no hardware).. would be nice to see a picture of one.. cant seem to find one anywhere? .. Thank you "
"Great to hear from you Michael! I have recently purchased a project :) but a very interesting vessel it is! I meet a really great guy that shares the same passion of sailing, he has recently had to give up the seas as-well. I will post pictures of…"
"Brandon, Cascade Yachts was bought by an outfit in Astoria, OR. I forget their name but you can find them thru a Google search. They may have the records from the Cascade Yachts files. Have fun with your 36. They're a great boat. "
I have a Cascade 36 and have been traveling for the last 2+ years. I recently saw your request for pictures of the orgiginal wood boom. I have several pics of my boom which had the original roller gear replaced, but otherwise is the way they were set up. I replaced my wooden spruce boom with an aluminum boom shortly before launching and taking off. If you still want pictures let me know. I will be leaving in a few weeks for Chile and probably not have internet after leaving. Mine is a great ocean boat and a pleasure to sail in all conditions.

"Cam, I used a wide, flat blade screw driver to pry it off. I took my time and made sure I wasn't forcing it and causing any dents or scratches. It took a little while to do but when done I had good access to the coils. One of the grills would…"
"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"
"Hey Mike - I agree with you that there is no physical problem with the unit running. My problem is the drain on the battery. As a weekend / once / twice a year cruiser, I don’t have solar to recharge my batteries (yet). I…"
"We experienced the same thing on our B43 (now sold and gone). We were living aboard and cruising with a fairly full freezer. Like you did I changed out the thermostat without success. I wrote it off to the poorly insulated freezer compartment but…"
