"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?

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!!

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,

Hi SeaKnots friends,The Yanmar 55 in out 43 invariably starts immediately then cuts out after 2 seconds running when it then takes 5-8 seconds cranking to restart......it seems as if the injection systems needs repriming. Is there a one way valve to prevent fuel back flow after shutting down?.Second niggle involves the hot water system. Whilst showering the water supply pump switches on and off as a result of the accumulator switch pressure changes. While the pump is running there is plenty of…See More
this may not be useful to you but when i bought my 40 back in 2016 the surveyor noted no VIN on my hull. His exact words to me were " only the manufacturer and the Coast Guard know that alternate location". With this being said,…"
