The seller reports the following:
The hull was manufactured by Yacht Constructors of Portland, OR. The "Cascade" program involved a hull built with Lloyds of London approved hand-laid-up schedule of fiberglass cloth, woven roving, and a 3”x5”beam clamp incorporated, making this one of the strongest fiberglass hulls for its size on the market. The plans were by Robert Smith, a Portland naval architect. In consultation with the architect the pilothouse was lowered by one (1’) foot and a sloped cabin top to provide better forward visibility.
The ketch was designed to sail out of the mouth of the Columbia River and therefore incorporated strength and safety features to ensure survival on the most dangerous of west coast river bars. The construction followed the architects specifications and scantlings, not the lighter ones employed by Yacht Constructors for their ready-builds. It was designed for ocean crossing. The floor timbers were made of luan mahogany fixed to the hull with fiberglass putty and additionally six layers of glass cloth laminated progressively, and the ends of the timbers secured with three layers of woven roving and resin coating of the entire assembly to secure a waterproof bilge (to prevent hull blistering and there has not been even one to date). Frames of 2” white oak were then placed at 14” intervals from the keelson to the beam clamp throughout the hull. Fiberglass insulation was then placed between the frames which were then covered with mahogany planks with a ¼” space between.
The rudder chosen was a 2’ x 4’ balanced spade rudder carried on a 4” diameter stainless steel post. The rudder tube was reinforced with fore, aft and athwartships blockings of mahogany. The tube was carried up above the cockpit floor where the hydraulic tiller was attached so that none of the hydraulic steering mechanism would be belowdecks, making repairs easier. Also all pumps and cylinders would be above the water line and less susceptible to corrosion. The steering mechanism was housed in a console containing the steering station and instrument panel. A second steering station was installed within the forward part of the pilot house, each working independently. Later a WH autopilot (controls inside and outside) was installed. At the top of the stainless steel rudder post is a quick and easy connection for the emergency tiller should it ever be needed.
Below the waterline all interior hull construction was mahogany, and above the waterline all framing was with Port Orford cedar and covered with marine mahogany ½” plywood. The deck has a 12 foot radius camber and were constructed over laminated mahogany over head deck beams covered with three (3) layers of 1/4” marine grade fir plywood using West System epoxy (which was used throughout all construction.) The cabin trunk sides were made of an outer one piece 24 foot long fir marine plywood to obtain the curves, and the inner made of Dutch 1mm Honduras mahogany ply both glued and bolted and screwed to the cedar frames. All deck beams and carlings were made of cedar. They were mortised, screwed and glued to the beam clamps and carlings. The entire exterior of the deck and cabin was then covered with fiberglass, making the top sides strong enough to with withstand breaking waves.
