Re: 1979 C & C 30 Mk1

Hello and welcome to Sailnet, TJT! You'll find this is a great place for learning and sharing knowledge, as well as seeing some great boat and sailing pics and hearing some interesting tales.

How long have you had the boat? Those are great boats.....I almost purchased a C&C 30 back when I was looking but didn't find any here that were in decent shape.

Marine Survey 101 may give you a few ideas.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: 1979 C & C 30 Mk1

Soft decks are probably one of the biggest things to look for in that vintage C&C boats.
None of the through deck holes are sealed so the balsa core is exposed to water that makes it past any hardware.
Tapping with a screwdriver handle can tell you a lot in a few minutes, the sound difference between good and bad areas is easy to discern. Don't need to beat on it, just light tapping listening for a dull/dead sound compared to other areas.

That is a horse head in the box. Not an alien!
