Re: Just bought my first sailboat! 1980 Cascade 27’

yea, that outboard hanging off would give me pause for blue water. The swells would really test the mounting. Probably fine heading up the inside passage and back in protected waters.

I crewed on a Cascade 36 around the SP and then NZ to Hawaii. She did fine and that one was really well finished.

My brother took his J/30 from Seattle to Juneau, inside. A Cascade 27 with an inboard should be ok for that too. Take LOTS of fuel, however. That diesel will get a workout in the typical (lack of) summer winds. Watch the currents. ("A Passage to Juneau” has some hairy descriptions of some of them.)

thanks! I feel like she’s solid and up for the task. It’s only got a 15 gallon tank so I guess will have some extra diesel onboard.
