Re: A C&C 30 mk2 with 6'6" draft?

We recently bought a C&C 30 mk2 and we are a little confused with the gib car tracks. There are double tracks and neither seem to have a direct line to the winch without getting caught up on a sharp edge somewhere. We tried using both jib cars at the same time, but it doesn't help much. Any insights on this? Any way to find out how the jib car tracks should work?
We hope our draft is 5' 10 as our slip is only seven feet deep at the present time.

Two cars for two different size jibs. Are there turning blocks aft of the winches?

There is a double turning block between the two aft winches, possibly 6 inches from the rail on both sides which we assumed would be for a spinnaker. We tried it with the jib sheet and it seemed to have a more direct line from the jib car to the aft self tailing winch. Is this turning block intended to be used with the jib sheet? We previously had a G&S 30ft Custom which was pretty much a racing platform with few ceature comforts so it is interesting discovering how this boat works which is focused on comfort as well.
I will try to find a picture if that would help.
Thanks for any help.
Cathy

Cathy those turning blocks are for you genoa sheets, if using a spinnaker the turning blocks are clipped on to the black rail. If you go straight from the car on the track to the winch I agree it is a straight line but you'll end up getting raps stuck around the winch when you tack....I learned that the hard way the first year I had my boat.

My C&C 35 has a similar setup. Allan is correct.

Thanks Allan for the info! Using those turning blocks did seem the best way, but we hadn't seen that before. I agree, gib sheet wraps stuck on the winch are not fun. So far we love this boat. We live just oustside Hamilton Ontario and were surprised to find one for sale where we live. We are going through the learning curve now.

I hope you enjoy the boat as much as I have in the last 14 years, absolutely no desire to move up to anything else. I'm on the eastern side of Lake Ontario, Prinyer's Cove in between Amherst Island to the east and Picton to the west.

I'm back with more questions for the C&C 30 mk2. How does one check the level of the holding tank?
Allan, I am very jealous. I love Prince Edward County and would move back there in a heartbeat. I lived in Carrying Place for a few years growing up and have never found a place I like more. Prinyer's Cove is a lovely place.

Only 2 ways to do that, either install a tank level gauge or hold your breath and look into the inspection port. Theres a hole drilled in the plywood of the cockpit locker floor, thats your inpection port under it. It is a good sized tank at 33 gallons and gives you good autonomy away from doing regular pumpouts.
