Captainmurph:
Do you still have a manual for this boat? Specifically, I need the wiring diagram, as the mast was replaced, and the new one has a different plug than the boat. When I unwrapped the wire coming out of the cabin, it has 4 wires, and the white one is broken below the outside shell. The remaining wires are green, blue, and yellow, and I can't find any of them going back to the fuse panel, or anywhere that I can locate .. The mast itself only has 2 wires, going up to the mast light. I am wondering...what are the extra wires coming out of the cabin, can I use one of them as the main wire to the mast light.

Re: New C&C 24 Project Boat (Wiring Diagram)

You'll find the C&C 24 wiring diagrams in this PDF. I think it will solve your issues; as I remember there was some confusion on my boat as the four wires coming from the cabin switch box didn't match the colors going up the mast.

These three pages show everything you need.

Thank you so much, this is a huge help. If all the lights listed were on the mast, I would now know what they are for. As it is, the only light on the mast is the masthead light, so I managed to use the yellow wire, and moved it in the panel to masthead spot. Can you look up and tell me what size wire I am supposed to have for the stays/ shrouds? The ones on the mast are too short, and I don't trust that they are the right thickness. Before I spend the money to replace them, I want to make sure I get the right ones, they seem pretty small (1/8").

Thanks to both of you. I am so glad I asked. The ones on the mast are all 1/8, which means they all have to be replaced. Scary, though. Don't know if they would have survived my first sail with this boat. Would it be possible to send me a copy of the manual? I had one, but it burnt up with my house in Connecticut, and don't want to spend another $25 for another.
