New CS30

I am currently getting to know my new CS30 1987 Model. Cleaning and repairing what is needed. I would like any info on how the vented loops are (properly) installed on the head and the Motor. I'm sure my Boat is not proper now. Also before I start looking are there typical leak points on the deck. I get fresh water during a rain, working into the cavity behind the switch panel. Then on top of the steering cover panel which has been wet for some time now judging from the delamination of the panel. Also while under way sailing in a breeze with water splashing on deck, in the compartments under the seats. Aside from these things she is in pretty good shape.

So far I like the boat and would appreciate any help.

Re: New CS30

Sorry Albrazzi, my cs30 doesn't have any deck leaks. All I can suggest are the usual, stanchions, and chain plates. Possible hull deck joint, but that is sealed with butyl tape do as long as the bolts at the toe rail are reasonably tight there should be no leak. At the start of the season I usually go around the toe rail with a screwdriver making sure they are snug. The only other suggestions to check are the cockpit drain hoses. The ones on my boat where rotted, and every time the bat heeled it would fill with water. Also there is no anti-syphon valve between the head and holding tank, so if the head joker valve goes, the holding tank can back feed into the head. Good luck

Do not tighten your toe rail this way. Tighten it by tightening the nut down below while someone holds a screwdriver on the bolt. If you try turning the bolt with screwdriver you'll only loosen the butyl tape that's on the bolt. Turn the nut not the bolt.

Re: New CS30

Faster,,Maybe the "Hate Boats" thing gets to the point later but I have never read so much useless dialog in my life. Not your suggestion just the thread.
I have read, I think, most all of the suggested diagrams and I just need to get past understanding how and why CS did some of the things they did.
For the leaks I just need to pull panels and hose the deck down, the interior headliners don't hold up well to water intrusion, the one under the cockpit is toast and a few more may not go back too well either.. No problem, its all work I can do I just need to get to it.

Thanks for all the replies, I will probably haul for the winter soon and add some stuffing box service to the list, shaft coupling is rusted BADLY and the hose on the stuffing box feels pretty soft to me its supposed to be 6 ply but I doubt it.

Re: New CS30

Thanks Paul, and everyone else. It doesn't feel right putting it away after only a month in the water but I have time to get her right for the spring.

Re: New CS30

Found the leak(s) a screw attaching a block that the headliner screws to was run in too deep and through the hull deck joint up to the rub rail. It was leaking as far as I'm concerned since the boat was built from the condition of the panel underneath. When I pulled the screw it really leaked and tightening the hull deck fasteners squeezed some butyl in the hole and we're done. Bonding some blocks to the under side of the deck to attach the headliner blocks to and will use some shorter screws. The other one was in the binnacle hoop where the hoop screwed to the deck clip. I'm curious if anyone with a CS 30 has a dorade scoop on the emergency tiller deck plate I'm getting some rain water in through that too, not much of course but it could easily just be capped. Its a bad spot for a vent on a blue water boat but I'm not doing that kind of sailing.
