Re: How to buy / fix :: C&C Mega 30 :: Cabin top cover
I have a C&C Mega 30, with the cover.
It's not a flat piece, and would probably be difficult to replace well with anything flat, the original part is curved in about every direction. You could get it something like that to work with a bit of effort, other than appearances I'm not sure of the downside. I generally pull mine off and stow it before sailing, under way, the way it flips up and almost stays up while you get in and out is kinda asking to get hit in the head with it, and with it there, closed, it flips up easy enough that I'd be concerned about people leaning on it handling the jib sheets (and ending up falling into the cabin..).
But I'm sure if I was missing mine, I'd want to replace it, even with the complaints I have with it.
There is a yahoo group called mega30sailors, it is a restricted group and requires joining, and is pretty slow. But every couple months someone posts selling off a boat or parts.
Or, I might be willing to make a mold, if someone could explain how to do it quick and cheap enough. I've done some fiberglass work before, but never anything quite like that. And making a mold, especially for one time use, using glass and epoxy would be kinda expensive to make and ship. I don't know what else something like that could be made of. (and if you had a port side rear seat, the part that goes over the engine, I'd certainly be interested in a "trading" of molds if such a thing is practical).
