Thanks. She was my $2,500.00 dream boat. I'm writing a book on how to get an almost free boat. HAHA JK.

The editors of my favorite sailing magazine "Good Old Boat", Karen Larsen and Jerry Powlas have a C&C 30 (Mystic") based at my home marina which they have cruised "offshore" all over Lake Superior and the North Shore of Lake Huron. Their adventures are referenced often in the magazine and they have experienced all kinds of nasty conditions on the big lake. Check it out. Anybody with a good old boat should be reading "Good Old Boat". Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with the magazine other than a subscription which I will never let lapse.

Limp is OK. Flopping around is not.

Cncphotoalbum.com has some good stuff on tuning your rig. Even youtube.com has some decent starter video on it.

Specific to your boat, be sure the mast step is in good shape. If it's not, the mast may even sink a bit under heavy loads like beating to windward in heavy air.

If you don't mind spending a little dosh, find a personable rigger who works or maybe crews on a race boat in your marina. He might be willing to give you an hours time when he's already there to help you tune your rig and teach you the basics.
A hundred bucks cash and you pull and replace all the cotter pins You might learn alot.

I sail on and maintain an '85 C & C 32. The small hatch over the main cabin has a drip leak coming in under the aft side of the frame. The best I can see is that the Atkins and Hoyle hatches are glued in (the screw holes in the frames only have caulking in them, no screws). Please share you retrofit experience. Thanks -

Steering the boat with your feet is a clear violation of the ISAF offshore Cat 1 regulations...and the COLREGS if I remember correctly...

Read about an offshore voyage in a 1973 C&C 30.
