There are more CnC 29 owners on there than you can shake a stick at.
Huge membership and knowledgeable about CnC specifics.

While your at it, buy a manual on the site, it's only $25 and you're going to need it.

How many bolts
What size bolts, including nut size
The speficic torque for those bolts
I may have to finish up buying the manual to get the specific acurate information I'm looking for. Thanks everyone else for replying, Ed
I believe the information given has been "accurate". It's your boat, go and measure them yourself then come back with a more reasonable attitude.

Here is the pic from the manual. The area under the forward bolt is sealed off. It can collect water which can freeze and cause serious damage. Be sure the the drainage holes are clear Enlarge the holes if necessary.

Here is a better illustration of what I'm talking about. There are 2 very small drain holes. Rain goes down inside of the mast and gets in the sealed compartment around mast step mounting bolts. The drain holes are easily clogged and must be opened up for winter storage.

Hello Sandusky Sailor, thank you so much for your very specific information on the C&C 29 MK11 keel bolts. I made a special 100 mile trip to my boat location today, & sure enough, there are (5) bolts, (2) are 3/4" & the other
(3) are 1" which will require a 1-1/8" socket for the 3/4" size bolt & 1-1/2" socket for the 1" size. I will be renting the appropriate torque multiplier to do the job, the 3/4" bolt will be torqued to 250 ft.lbs. & the 1" will be torqued to 350ft.lbs.
I have also aquired the boat manual & also the engine manual, so everything is just peachy for me now, thanks to everyone for their input, Ed

Be careful with that torque multiplier. That's a lot of force- torque up in steps like a cylinder head. Of course, if a keel bolt snaps, better on the hard than on the water. You may want to remove the nuts (1 at a time) before tightening down to caulk around the bolts if there's any space around them as they pass thru the keel stub. There should be large washers between the nuts and the epoxy bed of the keel stub- if not, make some plates to seat the nuts down.
If you have any separation at the keel/hull joint, clean it out with a narrow tool (hacksaw blade?) and caulk with 4200 (or 5200 is probably OK here) before tightening.

C & C 29-2 Keel Bolts

The company that I used to work for made these keels for C & C.

The keel drawings show the following bolts...
1 bolt - 1/2 " diameter
3 bolts - 1" diameter
1 bolt - 3/4 " diameter

No torques are given

The drawings are dated August 1982
Shows a keel weight of 2711 pounds
Drawings shoe design sections for the keel if anyone wants to fair a keel
