    V Berth Mattress

    This was discussed in a previous thread. You do have to read down a bit to see Jesse's solution...and there was a side discussion around sheets that was included as well.

    C310/315 IA Membership and BoatUS Discount Termination

    As members of the C310/315 International Association know, our members have been receiving a discount on BoatUS memberships. Today I received notice from BoatUS that effective January 4, 2021 basic BoatUS Membership dues increased for the first time in 10 years to $25 annually. Unfortunately...

    Survey on C310 #217

    It might help if you posted the link to the listing for the boat so folks can look over the pictures...

    Survey on C310 #217

    Overheating could be caused by an obstruction in the heat exchanger or a problem with the impeller/water pump...but neither would require a complete engine replacement. Not sure what cause of overheating would require a complete replacement, but I am NOT an engine expert by any stretch...

    Survey on C310 #217

    When I purchased my 2001 back in 2014 there were only a few items of concern, none of which were major: Starboard chainplate had minor moisture damage indicating a leak...I pulled and re-sealed with butyl tape a couple of years later (I should have done it sooner, the job was easier than I...

    Hunt for a 310

    Yeah, probably not a good idea to do that IN THE C310 FORUM. ;-)

    Blister history of Catalina 310

    I've never had a full strip to gel coat in the 6 years I've had my 2001.

    Blister history of Catalina 310

    Hull #48 - Same. Never had blisters, haul the boat every year (located in the Northeast), and I have bottom cleaned and painted every year.

    Mast base wiring connections

    Also no. The caps say "DO NOT OPEN" so I never even considered doing that.

    I love this forum. A quick search and I found where I posted all about it.

    Engine Power Issue

    I had an issue years ago with my RPMs suddenly taking a nose dive and then coming back up and then dropping again, sometimes leading to a stall. If I remember correctly, it was a problem with the wiring to the fuel pump or something similar on the engine. I think it was the first year I owned...

    Mast base wiring connections

    Very carefully, and on the hard. I muscled them up out of the compartment and onto the floor, then dragged them to the companionway steps, then lifted them a step at a time, keeping my center of balance directly over the battery. Once in the cockpit I dragged to the stern where I had a ladder...

    Moving to the Dark Side

    Good luck with power! If you are currently a member of the C310IA please let me know so I don't keep hammering you with reminders to renew. ;-)

    Side window (Salon) replacement

    Looks like someone dropped something on it. You might be looking for this thread. Or this one.

    Winterizing the C310 engine?

    Don't forget to pump out the holding tank before haul-out! I don't see that on anyone's list of things to do. I also send pink antifreeze through the entire head system, including pumping some into the holding tank. How often to change fuel filters (first and second stage)? - I started...

    Mast base wiring connections

    Here is a thread on replacing the swim ladder with one that stores flat and pulls out and then down.

    Jack Stands

    I have not had that problem...our yard guys are quite good. Of course, I'm an Atlantic Highlands Harbor Commissioner, so I might be a little biased. ;-)

    Jack Stands

    I re-read your post and now I see what you are asking. My prior post didn't really address your actual question. I assume the difference is wing vs fin keel. I have a wing, and the ScaffoldMart stands are fine. If you have a fin instead, then you probably need the bigger ones that Defender...
