"New owner of a Cascade 27 Hull #29. I know this page isn't very active, but it's great that there are a few of us left. I fell in love with the Cascades in the early 1980's when I walked in to Yacht Constructors as a 20 year…"
What a great time! We placed 2nd in the Kilo division on my buddy's Harding Force 50 "Luna Sea". The only one to beat us was Patsy on Talion, a *beautiful* Gulfstar 50 Sloop also from Portland, now based in La Paz. Will post more later.
Well I'm late to the party. Retirement has been exhausting. Moving, setting up the new household but now were ready for our trip to AK. We will be leaving sometime towards the end of June from Everett. S/V Compadre are you still heading north?
Hey Don what is your email address and we can talk about trying to organize a rendezvous? We are heading to Alaska in June and returning in late August. We thought about joining the Baja HaHa next year but it depends on the timing of our departure from Puget Sound in 2020. I'm super stoked that the year of leaving is finally here!!
Thanks for the invite. Until very recently my Cascade 29, "Time Enough" was based at McCuddy's on the Columbia, just up river from Hayden Island. Currently she's on a trailer parked next to my shop in Kingston, Wa. Hope to do some repairs and a refit and have her back in the water in about 2 years. Thanks again,

I have also installed solar a few years back so will need to adjust the charging…See More

Hey Gang, I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
