" Well, after a year, work has finally started on my 29. I found an engine. A 3GM30 Yanmar. The old Palmer gas was taken out today. In a week we will be back in the water, with a new engine. The Yanmar is a new engine never been installed…"
I am not active on SeaKnots and only checked here today to see whats new. I've covered approx. 10 thousand offshore miles in the last two years and am about to head out again. As to revitalizing this site I think the site is somewhat awkward and primarily a social get together site, but also it seems to be the only Cascade group online. I have a website (napmarine.com) which I started many years ago to put some info out there about my Cascade 36, and to share travels with family and friends . I'm not very good about keeping it up to date and I can't seem to get the messaging function to work, so anyone who wants to contact me to cuss me out or to chat probably won't get through; I am still working on it to get the messaging to work.
The next voyage is southbound from San Francisco with Chile in the plan. Can't yet speculate where after that. I remember a enjoying a Latitude 38 article about your sailing adventures several years ago.

"Mike nails the freezer (and Refrigerator) item. Remove the woodencovers on the vents, and if they have never been off you will most likely find a carpet of dust/hair/lint. I drilled small screw holes and added screws to re-attach. Now it is a…"
"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…"
