Crap, I meant to add the happiest two days in a man's life is the day he buys a boat and I forgot what the other day is..... congrats though sounds like this one took a long hard study and in general, I bet these folks who outfitted it didn't want any trouble. If it checks out fine I believe you'll be happy.

Re: First Boat, Am I getting a good deal?

Tyler,

I saw your email in my inbox ( jonzabriskie[at]gmail.com ) but did not see your actual message on the Sailnet boards, so I just found your name in the forums. It's cool to read about your new boat, and I would love to go sailing to have some experience on the water. I am in Sammamish, and I have weekends off (I am a teacher), so let me know a time when I can check out the sloop. And thanks for offering in the first place!

Jon

Re: First Boat, Am I getting a good deal?

Tyler welcome to the site. I just sold a 1992 Beneteau First 285 for 24000.00. I sail in the Pacific North West where Cascade were built.“Cascade cruisers or racers can always be identified by our hand lay-up method of construction in the hull. We use woven roving and cloths, lay each piece in and wet it out with resin, then hand squeegee excess resin to keep the content low. Our resin content in the finished hull is approximately 50%, as compared to nearly 70% resin found in many of the hulls made today with mat (chopped fibers) and chopper guns. The use of mat and chopper guns, while greatly reducing construction costs, have not improved the quality of hulls. Compared with woven fiberglass, these methods use a large amount of resin which adds weight and bulk and makes the laminate more brittle.”

Time has proven both the process and design. Both are legendary. The bullet proof sample is still in the office since 1954. Many Cascades won important races during the past and several have made circumnavigations.

In 1978, Mr. Smith designed the CASCADE 27, and he received Hull No. 1 of that series.

I think you might be getting a better deal than you think. They were quality boats at a great price back in the day some time you just need to jump for the deal!!!!!!

She looks very nice we will look out for you in the PNW. If you see our boat in a bay come over for a glass of wine. Our baoat is a Beneteau 340 the kids named her the black pearl.

This the the most positive "What's This Boat Worth" thread that I've seen.
