  2. How to buy / fix :: C&C Mega 30 :: Cabin top cover

    C & C
    Hello there all, I bought a C&C Mega 30 a few years back, and it was missing the top cover into the cabin. I have been using a very not amazing plywood cover that tied down with line. Not the best solution. I was hoping to either buy a new one, or figure out how to make a mould and create...

    Gear & Maintenance
    Would anyone happen to own or have actual visual access to both an FX-11 and a Guardian G-16 model anchors, both 7 pounders made by Fortress, who can tell me if the "crown" (the bottom piece where both the flukes and crossbar slide into) might be be interchangeable or could perhaps be made...

  8. Volvo Engine Repair Facilities

    Boat Buyers & Sellers Forum
    We're looking at buying a 2008 Cat with twin 30hp Volvos. An acquaintance told us to stick with Yanmar. He said Volvo parts availability is terrible, and slow. Don't really know if he has had more than one bad experience. Anyone with experience with the Volvo network in the US, Caribbean and...
