The Cascade 29 has good performance numbers for it's size. That's a good deal if it is a solid boat. I would consider that model if I were single handing a bluewater passage.

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

Hmmm. I'll bet there's 15-20K in upgrades lurking in that boat before anyone can even think of venturing out of sight of land.

There are very few great deals on old boats. Most have been sorely neglected. Some are disasters waiting to happen.

If you're happy to sail a boat in that condition, or you're willing to sink the money into it, go for it.

Just don't make the mistake of thinking you'll buy it and go sailing off into the sunset.

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

offer them $3.50 for the cascade it's trashed. The C 30 has no mention of the engine. may be a Atomic 4 in 78. Catalinas are much loved boats.

Blue water?? I don't think so and I'm far from any kind of expert on what's what.

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

I'm thinking the Catalina will always worth something. That's a plus. Forget about bluewater cruising. Get real.

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

Presumably, "Bluewater Potential" in this case means the next owner will need to furnish his own storm shutters for those picture windows?

Re: $3500 inexpensive bluewater cruiser

Is this a plywood boat covered in West System glass?
This does not seem a very good offshore design. She looks very light and has very little hull in the water, and a pretty large cockpit. Her spars look extremely light. I think you could find a much better boat for offshore sailing.

If by weird finishes you mean floors made out of old pallets yes it is weird.
