C & C 30'

Hello All,

First post coming at you. I have been interested in finding opinions on C&C 30' boat as I am considering one for my first sailboat. For the life of me I cannot get the search function to bring back any hits on C & C or C and C, keeps coming up empty, stating to common,etc. Does anyone have any ideas how I could make my search more effective?

Also would be interested in hearing from any past or present C&C 30' owners, with boat specific issues to be wary of. Boat in question has been seriously upgraded, its a few hundred miles away so someone else is doing the walk thru and preliminary questioning before I commit to the trip to see it. If it looks good when I see it I will make offer subject to survey and sea trial. I have Don Casey's book "Inspecting the old Sailboat" as my guide.

What a great site this is, I have lurked for a while and am amazed at helpfulness of the members


thank you,
michael

Search for "C&C" and you can find plenty. I owned a "77 30 Mark I back when and I considered it then and still now as an absolutely fantastic boat, excellent sailing, easily races to its racing, and yet good as a cruiser. Buy a good one and you can't go wrong.

Certified...in several regards...

Sailingfool,

Thank you, I never thought of the parenthesis. Found lots of posts. Sounds like they were (are) a nice boat. I hope it works out, I would rather be sailing than looking at boats, but if this isn't a solid, no major issues boat I will move on.

Thanks again for the "how to" search advice.

Doubleeboy-

These are parentheses: ( )

These are quotation marks: " "

I'd recommend you do a google search using the following text:

Quote:
C&C 30 site:sailnet.com
That will bring up a list of threads and posts on the C&C 30.

Also, highly recommend you read the post in my signature.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The couple that founded "Good Old Boat" magazine sail a C&C 30. On their sea trials, they agreed that, "This girl can dance."

Unfortunately, this also brings up every website that mentions one for sale.

Thank you all for your input. An initial inspection of the boat by my wife went very well, boat appears to be in excellent conditon, with good WAF (wife acceptance factor). I hope to be able to make the trip to inspect it my self at the end of week.

thanks again,
michael

Congratulations for first step. WAF is almost as important as survey.

Do not buy a C&C with the atomic IV gasoline engine. The engine compartment ventilation system is likely dangerous due to domestic type non-ignition protected AC breakers in the compartment. The AC conductors were solid core copper which at this age is breaking down and unsafe. The fuel tanks were mounted directly on a wooden deck without airspace underneath and the bottoms rotted out. Check ALL hoses as they are probably rotten. Foredeck and side decks are probably soft. Google C&C owners for a link to the owners association.
