"Hi Brandon, 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…"

"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. "

"Is this site still active? Just purchased 1976 Cascade 36 hull number 8! Does anyone know who this boat was originally build for?"

Hi Brandon,

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. 

Enjoy,

Brian

"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…"

"Mike - great information!  I was hoping that there is a way to remove the wood grills. What type of tool did you find worked that didn’t damage the wood?  "

Mike Brown replied to Cam Whitlock's discussion Freezer problem in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"
