Davids right, bought the C30, #103, and will get it Friday. My wife liked it for comfort and space and I like the way it sails. Not real fast but fun.
Thanks for the expertise

PalmettoSailor will become famous soon enough
Congrats on the new boat. The first rule of sailing is "if the Admiral isn't happy, nobody is happy".

Sometimes, I'd love to have a faster boat, but the truth is, I love the comfortable accomodations on my Catalina and I wouldn't trade that for a few seconds a mile. (As if I had a choice after my wife went below on the C36).

You should look into the C30 owners group. I find I get a lot of useful information from the C36 group and I bet the C30 folks will prove to be a valuable resource as you enjoy your new boat.

Thanks Midlifesailor. I'm hoping when I get Anicca finished the way the Admiral wants, we will do a lot of sailing. Any speed under sail is better than not sailing.

We just purchased a 1987 Catalina 30 and are thrilled with the space and layout. Since we purchased the boat in November, we haven't had much good weather to take her sailing but looking forward to this summer. Will be full-time cruising in about a year.

Still re-fitting

Since I purchased Anicca I've completely found out how a C30's built. I've rebuilt the compression post,replaced the keel nuts, water pump,water heater,electra-san treatment system, standing rigging,furling system, bilge pumps,added a new Standard horizon chartplotter,depth-finder with a Si Tex radar and am now replacing the old plumbing with pex. Next is the wiring.
We're almost ready to go cruising,if the dump truck doesn't run out of money.
My Admiral is really happy with the boat which is of primary concern.

Billy654, Sorry for the late response Don't have any current pictures but Anicca is a 1975 serial #103 fin keel standard rig. She has an Atomic 4 and is really comfortable and easy to sail. Perfect boat for a novice sailor to cruise and enjoy the Sound
