I am in the middleof replacing my windows on my Mark I C&C 30. The windows were the original alluminum framed inserts. One side leaked. I am having abuddy cut replacement lexan pieces. We will urethane theseto the o/s and then I will bolt through the cabin top. Getting the olde windows out was a pain. I also re-filled the outer-inner cabin top and inside with 3M Marine 5200. I will sand finish the inside edge of the window prior to the new windows being glued in.

I'm happy that you trust our products for such an extreme journey. They won't let you down!
As for the building, I was there the day it was taken down. It was a real shame because my Great-Great-Grandfather bought that property and the small house that was on it. But when the cost of carrying a small piece of land becomes as high as it has, the small guys get driven out to make room for the yuppies I would have liked to stay there but now we have a nice place in Napanee, where the air is clean and the taxes are low!
If you want to know more about that piece of land and its history I typed up a small blurb on link on our homepage, titled History.

I'll keep that in mind as I would like to keep your portlights and hatches in for a proposed world cruise...they'll be put to the test, I'll say that much.
Call Peter at Holland Marine for the gasketing...he'll set you up. You should see what's at your former address...another stinking great condo....

|Benjamaphone||Sometimes the initial cost of excellence is high but in the long run it will pay off. The cost associated with the gasket material directly comes from the fact that it is a special high density neoprene rubber. This will last 5-10 times longer than conventional gasket material that is found in many marine stores. Also, the price of one or two gaskets will be higher than if you were to order enough to replace everything on your boat; as with everything, quantity = discount.|

EDIT: Goddamnit, I did it again.
Anyway, Mr. Atkins, I have several of your products aboard my new-to-me steel cruiser, and while they are excellently made, you have to get the price of those replacement gaskets down!

C&C was generally a great boat, but their companionways and portlights aren't, being a little light in the first case for offshore and a little thin in the second case, in my opinion. The foredeck hatches, almost all made by Atkins and Hoyle (and still being made), were excellent and have stood the test of time. I have them on both my '73 and my '88 boats.
