Hi from S/V Puff

Hi,
I am a first time poster. I have a Cascade 36 in San Diego CA and plan to truck her up to Berkley to refit her and replace her diesel. Hope to have her ready by 1/1/10. She has a great history but has been neglected of late.

Thanks

I want to thank you for the observation. It has been taken care of. What I should have said was I dream of having here close by 1/1/10.

Hi i have a Cascade 36 , i thought i just had to tune up my Westerbeke 30, it had sat for 5 years wile i was off working out of state. And as you old hands can guess it got deeper and deeper. Right now the head is off in a shop being resurfaced. I love the Cascade 36 i am living aboard now and find it pretty roomy for 1 person. I am trying to save my Westerbeke even though it is over 30 years old. I figure to re build it is going to cost me like 1k verse a re power, maybe 8k. Any way good luck from one Cascade owner to another.

Good Luck with the westie. I am in the same spot you are except that I will be pulling mine and thinking of replacing with a smaller engine than my 4-91 Westerbeke which is the same size block with a smaller Bore. I don't think that I need 40hp for 14,000lbs.

Hi Harry,
What kind of sailboat are you talking about and what engine made the most sense to you. I wish there were a good place on the net that would help get a good idea what lasted longest and had the best economy over time.
Thanks,

I was thinking of the boat you have S/V Puff. Mine is similar. Its an Allegro 33 Swedish built double ender with rudder on the outside, tiller. Volvo 2030 MD its 3 cyl probaly called something different now, is plenty with 29 hp and a 3 blade propeller. It takes me 6.5 knots at 2200rpms in calm weather.
I think any of Yanmar, Volvo Penta, Perkins is a good choice. Im in Sweden so Volvo is a natural choice. Id pick brand on serviceavailability/parts where you think you will be located. By the way Perkins and Volvo use the same engineblock in this size engine.
If you service a diesel well it will take many thousands of hrs. 6-10000hrs and more.
All the best to you/ Harry

I know what you are thinking of, we both have a very similar Gross weight.
I know that lots of people would like 40 or more horse but I think Gallons Per Hour is a very important number for me.
Thanks Harry

At 5.5 knots it uses less than 2.2 litres/hr. 0.7 galls/hr in smooth water. Built in tank takes 40 galls and 4 jugs with 6.6 gallons in each takes me a fair distance./Harry

Hi Cascade 36,
I am going to be adding aluminum toe rails on my cascade and wondered if you have them on your Cascade and if you do do you know how to purchase them.

Thank,
