C&C 30 MK1 its officially mine

Today i'am the official new owner of a 1981 30'C&C MK1. Hull # 675
Hull number is intresting because it is Mentioned In The Literature of the boat. C&C 30 Were it mentions the Diesel options. My boat has a 2GM Yanmar Perrs like a kitten.
Se has great bones. She will take some work and some money. I think I will spend maybe 6 grand on her this comming seasion. Then again, that much next year and I should have her back in ship-shape order.
1) She needs the bottom $1,500.00
2) she needs her tru-hulls looked at. They dont leak but some are stuck and clogged up. Raw-water strainer needs a gasket.
3) she needs Running rigging.
4) She needs new sole boards built and installed. I will do this. $ 600.00
5) new 8D marine super cell $143.00
6) decks cleaned.
7) needs a tiller. Wheel sterring "But" no emergance tiller on board
8) new VHF it has a working radio form the 1980's
9) rewire some the autohelm insterments.
10) repair the marine-head
I am so glad that I found this vessel. She is a great boat. I have read for a year befor I purchased her. I only her good things abought the C&C 30 MK 1
like: construction of the hull is a single moulded, uncored fibreglass unit, repairs are much simpler and cost effective in comparison to those hulls having a balsa core.The 30 Mk1 makes an excellent PHRF racer.Specifications
LOA 30 ft.
LWL 24 ft. 11 in.
Beam 10 ft.
Draft 5 ft.
Disp. 8,000 lbs.
Ballast 3,450 lbs. lead
Sail area 459 sq. ft
I just cant wate to get started. Theres so much to do.
If anybody has any poticuler histery with this vessel I would love the advice.

Great boat! Have fun.

Don't be afraid to go to a smaller jib, like a 110%, in a breeze over 18. While the boat is very stiff, the smaller jib allows you to keep the main full and on. Goes upwind like a bat out of hell.

Not all C&Cs were made in Canada...mine was made in Middletown Rhode Island. so we sing Yankee Doodle Dandy not Oh Canada ( although I love the Camnadians,,,) The plant there was open from 1975-1985.

I have not tried it I just notticed some staining in the bowl and some duct tape around the hand pump. most of the boat use will be nearshore for this coming year. The bathhouse at the marina is close enough.

Beating close

A guy told me this boat was bad in light wind but good in heavy.
He also told me she didnt like more than 20% heeling. I cant wate to streight her out in a 20 knot blow. Its been so long. Thanks guys for all your great advice.
