Although the build quality is above average as compared to many other 30' racer/cruisers of that era (e.g. Catalina 30), there are several things that in my opinion disqualify the factory configuration from being bluewater capable. My main concerns would be the spade rudder, plastic portlights and molded fiberglass hatches, cockpit is a bit oversized and cockpit drains don't have seacocks, lazarette lids aren't sealed and don't have latches, the saloon settees are acceptable as sea berths but not great and would need lee cloths added, stove is non-gimbaled alcohol, the open saloon design not ideal for passagemaking and sacrifices storage on board, and there is no charting table, not even a stand-up. All that said, bluewater sailing has been done in lesser boats with upgrades and a lot of the issues with the L30 could be overcome if one wished.
