Re: C&c 29 mki

Thanks FDR but the mast is up and somewhat tuned. I just went by the owners manual and a few of the members that have 29's have helped out. I was able to get about 7" of rake and she does not have any weather helm or other bad habits. Just got lucky I guess.

Oh I just came across this entry again. My bad I haven't copied the rigging guide, I will attempt to find it tomorrow. By now you must be sailing her around, did you manage to get any rake in the mast? I have never been successful with that...

Re: C&c 29 mki

Thanks Jimmy. I do have the manual and pictures off the brokers website. Never had a keel stepped mast before so shimming the spar is going to be all new for us. The manual gives a rake range of 6" to 10" for larger boats. Was going to start at about 7" of rake and go from there. The boat is still in Pickering and it driving me nuts not having her here. Oh well what's two more weeks of no sleep. Thank again for the reply.

Re: C&c 29 mki

Rod,
Congratulations on your new boat. I also have a C&C 29 MK1. When I took position, it wasn't rigged, so I had to figure it out (with the help of others)

Just after getting it right, I received the original manual for the boat.

I'll be rigged next weekend. Let me know what you want a picture of. Also, I can copy all the pertinent info of the Owners Manual, such as wiring , if you wish

Unless repowered , it will have the bullet proof A-4. Give it a chance, you'll love it. Moyer Marine Website is a fantastic resource. There are some really knowledgable guys on that forum, that are quick to offer great advice. It's quite the brain trust. Reasonably priced parts too.( no association except a happy customer)

You'll notice her a little tender, but she'll stiffin up quickly. Great speed in light winds. After rounding up for the first time last year, we immediately kept pushing the limits and rounded up a few more times in the same hour. I came away with a better feel for the helm, and subsequently had better success in 20+ knots.

Enjoy!

Jimmy

Welcome aboard. I have a certain "afinity for all things C&C"
Join the C&C owners forum for great tips and ideas. You are in the heart of C&C counrty although our Haleakula was built at the Bristol Conneticut yard in its brief existance.

Re: C&c 29 mki

Congratulations, now the fun begins. What are the questions? Rigging is pretty simple as that stick doesn't bend a whole lot. We will be putting ours back in the water after the first of May. Come on by and you can help....Since us Yankees think Kanata is a suburb of Ottawa, I suspect you will be sailing on the St Lawrence? We are in Niagara on the Lake where there are a number of C&C29's in what used to be C&C's home port.

There is a review of the 29 on the C&C owners site written by Hank Evans which you may find interesting, I don't much agree with Hank's characterizations of the 29's sailing profile, but then I learned on dingy's and the boat suits me just fine. When I get the chance I will dig out the 29 owners association guide to rigging written by Skip Doyle and make you a copy. Email me in April and remind me ....

Hi. My wife and just purchased a 1976 C&C MKI. Although we are no where near our sailing season we are looking for any tips from 29 owners on rigging or anything that you learned the hard way. Any and all advice will be appreciated.
Thanks Rod
