MOST OF US CAN FIND WAYS TO GET MORE MONEY, BUT NONE OF US CAN GET MORE TIME. TO GO CRUISING IS TO CHOOSE TIME OVER MONEY


IT IS A DIFFICULT DECISION TO GIVE UP CONTENTMENT FOR UNCERTAINTY, BUT IF YOU DON'T, YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE AS FULL AS IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

Shaun Lynch replied to DJ Wardrop's discussion 29 Cascade Owners in the group Cascade Owners Unite
"There is probably a spec sheet on the Cascade 29 bridge clearance, but it would only be an estimate, since it depends on where your specific boat sits on its "designed" waterline and assumes your mast is the standard height. Some boats are…"
