100% itís been sunk. Itís fixable - if you can get it for a steal and particularly like that model, but otherwise itís a full refit and lots of hours / money involved....

All it needs is a rig and stanchions.

If she was complete, I'd be tempted because I'm crewing down to that area this November.

If she was complete for that price, I'd be willing to swim down there to take ownership.

Cascade 42 1965 - $18,000 (Bainbridge WA)

No pictures and a somewhat high price, but maybe someone might want to take a peek if they're nearby. There seem to be a lot of Cascades in that neck of the woods.

True, they're 2-3 hours (176 miles) apart. I might look at both if I was up there. Someone did say that the one in Astoria was nicer than expected. Size-wise, they're the same and probably have about the same hull, but both of the interior designs are interesting and sort of unique from what I'm used to seeing, partially due to one being a center cockpit and one being an aft cockpit. I'm not really familiar with the "Sailboat Calculations" that sailboatdata.com lists, but there are differences there also.

It's like a stretched Cal 40, similar design/hull except it has a bolt on keel with bulb and a skeg-hung rudder. I'd want to know about the keel bolts at this age. That one in Seattle is the high side model, later model with wider beam. May be the better design.

The boat needed a good cleaning inside and out, but it is in very nice cosmetic condition otherwise. The standing rigging looked new and everything seemed great. I got very excited to have found a diamond in the rough, but in the end I did not buy it.

I had a surveyor come out and he found that the deck coring had deteriorated over most of the cockpit area, including under the winches and on the starboard side of the cabin.
Despite the low price of the boat, that would have been too much work for me to fix on my own, but perhaps this could still be a deal for someone else out there...

Sent you a p.m. re: my parkins h28 , do you have a working link for the other boat
