Drumroll30 Ok Rob I'll try to find some bad news items to mention but after 11 years I can say that I really love my boat and I have no need to "move up". My boat is a wing keel, advertised draft id 4'6", loaded down mine might be 4'8". The wing keeled version is 500 lbs heavier.

I changed the fuel pump on my Yanmar last summer, a bit of a pain with the space constraints but I managed it in about 90 minutes.

I haven't yet tackled changing my exhaust hose but I know its going to be a tough job and not one that I'll do on a hot day.

I changed the hinge mechanisms on all of the Lewmar hatches about 8 years ago. They're the kind that are supposed to stay open by a 3 position hinge but none of them did. Lewmar did a part redesign and I haven't had any more problems since I replaced the parts which if I remember right were under $40 per hatch.

My rudder had water intrusion from the top of the rudder post and I got a few hairline vertical cracks also about 8 years ago. I drilled holes in the side and injected epoxy into the voids, I used about 1 1/2 litres of epoxy. I drilled a 1/4" hole at the bottom of the rudder and I leave it open, after haulout it drips for a couple of hours. Eventually I'll get my rudder rebuilt, I got a quote from Phil's Foils in Ottawa and he quoted $1200. if I bring him the old rudder and he re-uses the shaft.

At the end of the day not bad for a 23 season old boat. I club race in the white sail division and we're consistently in the top 3 boats. The type of boats I race against: Corvette 31, CS 33, C&C 36+, C&C 37XL, C&C 34, Elite 364, C&C 29 Mk II, C&C 27 Mk III, Mirage 33.

RobGallagher Wow, the draft listed on this boat is 5'10" However, brokers have been wrong before so I'll have to double check that info. Thanks.

ToppDogg About the only thing I would question with it is the DRAFT. We have a C&C MKII over here and I did get to talk to the owner last summer, he told me they measured the draft for him at 6'6.

I posted this in the "Boat review and purchase forum".

Sorry for the double post, but I am hoping to catch the attention of any new 30MKII owners out there!

Mods, feel free to delete this if I broke a rule by double posting:

I currently own a C&C 30 MK I vintage 1972.

I found a 30 MK II I am interested in.

Of course I will get a full survey, etc. However, I was hoping some of the current or past owners here could give me a heads up as to problem areas I could investigate on my own before paying for the survey.

The problem is, so far everything I have read had nothing but good things to say about this model

Come on, give me the bad news, talk me down from the ledge before I jump

ToppDogg Yes they both are. The one in Wa. is a good price but I'm questioning the upkeep on it. I still have not spent any money on a Surveyor, I figure with Fall here now I can pick and choose for the next few months. Patience gets the best!

Drumroll30 Hi Topp Dogg,
I don't have anything extra running from the mast to the stern, it has a split backstay and the lines I think your asking about would be the backstay tensioner. It works by bringing the 2 side splits together with a line going through snatch blocks. The other aft lines I have are lazy jacks to the boom.
The one trouble spot I've seen on a few of these models are gelcoat cracking at the stern on each side of the opening swim ladder, aside from that only routine maintenance items. One bear of a job that comes to mind that I haven't yet done is replace the exhaust hose. Are the 2 your looking at on Yachtworld?

ToppDogg Hello all C&C MKII Owners. I'm looking at two of them now, this has been some good information, any trouble spots I should tell the surveyor? Drumroll what are the lines running off the mast to the stern of your MKII?

Stowaway Also, the C&C30Mk.II will outpoint most boats, they get sweeter as you go into the wind, when it pipes up.

Sails... I have a set of Dacron sails I'd like to part with all for a roller furling - 115, 135 and main... all 10 year old Hoods. Offers.

Stowaway Yes, I am owner of #25 - Stowaway V. Fire away with the questions.

Drumroll30 Hi Rob, NO I won't trade, as a matter of fact if I won a lottery I would still keep my boat, I like it that much.
I can't really compare the sailing abilities between the I & II except to say the II is a faster boat with almost 26 feet of waterline. The Mk I does have a reputation of being among the stiffest of C&C's. On my Mk II in cruising mode with just my girlfriend and I aboard I fly full main and 140% up to about 12 knots true wind, anything over that I have to start playing the traveller in the puffs. As for pointing I have sailed my wing keeled version side by side with my friends deep keel version, he out points me by about 4 or 5 degrees. When he sailed on my boat he found the extra 500 lbs of wing keel made it feel stiffer than his. My draft is 4'6", his is 5'11".
