Re: New C&C 30 MKI owner

Welcome to the C&C club. 30 is a really nice boat. Follow the advice given...safety first.

I would have the keel boats tightened as C&C has a well known smile at the hull keel junction. Additionally I would check thru hulls and also any deck equipment as the upper on most has a balsa core. Look carefully the first year or two for leaking or water intrusion in every crevice so you catch it and repair it early before it spreads.

Also if you are rid rigged when was the last time the heads were reworked?

C&C has a reputation of stiff very responsive handling. Learn to reef your main early (18 knots ) to keep her on her feet and not overcome by too much sail area up.

Also the C&C owners forum is a great group to learn the intricacies of your particular model with like owners

Re: New C&C 30 MKI owner

Hi there,

I'm planning on getting a C&C 30 too as my first sailboat, after reading your post I'm wondering if the boat met your expectations and how is she as of now.

Thanks!

Hi, the boat has met my expectations and more. I'm very happy with it. My first sail after i took a sail lesson involved me and the boat three day and nights on the water, the end of the trip was in 3 meter seas, 30 gusting 40 kts wind. It took me through no problem.
Boat is realy easy to work on, i thought i would upgrade but now I'm with this boat for as long as she will have me.
I would totally do it again. All old boats have problems, being able to repair and improve upon it is ideal. Good luck.

Re: New C&C 30 MKI owner

Just came across your posting.
I too am the new owner of a C&C 30 MKI (1974) and plan to have it out for lake cruising soon.

Writing to ask how things are going with your C&C? I have checked rigging and am replacing some halyards and sheets. Everything else looks OK for now.

I have since bought a C&C 30 MKI, I'm tickled pink, looking forward to unwrapping it, it is stored away for winter. I plan to work on gaining some sailing experience and sail my boat from Maine to New Brunswick in June. I would like to gain some advice on safely making the boat ready, such as equipment and rigging the boat.
My list of upgrades is low, I think it may need expanding, so far I have;

Bottom paint
Paint Hull
Batteries
Paint Mast
Repair Mast step
Radar
Radar Reflector
Autopilot
Chartplotter
LED Mast light
Replace Thru Hulls


If anyone could chime in on appropriate equipment that is sutible for the size of boat (especially the electronics) that would allow the boat to be out for multi days, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks for any help.

Re: New C&C 30 MKI owner

I'm a new 1979 C&C 30 MK1 owner, When I inspected my boat I saw there there is wire connections for 2 batteries. If its like my camper van one is for the appliance a deep cycle battery and the other a normal battery for the motor. Could anyone direct me to what batteries to get and what is the placement of the batteries. how do I know which wires to use with each battery maybe there is schema somewhere I haven't found yet. Thanks for your help.

Re: New C&C 30 MKI owner

Most boats of your size and age had two Group 24 or 27 batteries and a 1-2-Both-Off switch. Either was used to start the engine and run the lights, electronics, etc. Going that route is fine. An upgrade would be two golf cart batteries for a house bank and a start battery. No battery boxes? Get some if not.

Not sure I understand the question, are you referring to a place to connect at the 1/2/ all switch with no cables connected then you would need to add a Battery, find a place for it and run cables. If you have cables and no Battery then you just need to know what Battery will fit. In any event you want a Battery box and depending on space available choose a Battery for that space.
