    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...

    C310/315 IA Membership Pages Updated

    I've been a little less than diligent in updating the C310/315IA membership pages on the web site, however I did exactly that last week. You can sort by name, model, city, etc. There are a few cities with more than one C310/315 member. If you are a 310 or a 315 owner and you are not a member...

    2020 Launch!

    I know some folks leave their boats in year-round, but here in the Northeast we have a May-October (maybe April - October if you are lucky) sailing season, and getting Jacqueline moved from her jack stands into the water is quite a process. It was pretty windy yesterday, so you'll notice I...

    Repacking the Stuffing Box

    As I've mentioned on this forum before, I'm not the most handy guy but owning a sailboat means doing a lot of maintenance yourself or paying a lot of money for someone else to do it. If the job gets too complicated I tend to bail out and pay for it...a good example is when I had a new RAM mic...

    C310 IA Web Page link to the Forum is Broken

    Before someone else points it out to me, I do know that the link to this forum from the C310IA web site is now broken with the change-over to the new forums. I'll get it fixed, it is just a bit of a hassle to change anything on the Association web page because I don't have direct access to the...

    Membership List Updated

    Good afternoon! For those members of the C310 IA, the Membership List on our web page was just updated. Please let me know if you notice a problem with your entry. We're still performing a lot of manual HTML coding when that list is updated, which is why I tend to only update it once per...

    Dead Battery

    I am not a battery / electronics person. I had no issues over the winter with my (I assume) 4D batteries, but once I launched this season I came back a week later (lots of rain in the NE) and Battery #2 was in the red.

    Removing Standing Rigging from the Mast

    So the current cover I have for my C310 is a mast-down cover (hopefully this is the last year I'll be using that cover, right Jesse? ;-) ). Last year we were selling property, buying property, and moving so I didn't have time to get the mast down and I just paid for shrink-wrap, but this year...

    Rebedding Project

    I'm going to share a project I did, because I don't think of myself as the most handy guy but I manged to successfully rebed a chainplate on my C310. I've had a leak around one of the big chainplates that is bolted to the starboard bulkhead down below, so this year I decided to delay going in...

    C310IA Web Site is Down

    Good morning. The C310IA Web Site (http://www.catalina310.org/) has been down for most of this week. We're having a DNS issue that I'm working to resolve in-between the things I have to get done for my paying job. :-) I'll let everyone know when it is back up. In the meantime, if anyone...

    Literally, a Crappy Father's Day

    Here is a story under the heading, "Thank goodness this didn't happen to me!" I knew our holding tank was pretty full, so I called the pump out boat 2 weekends ago to swing by and do a pump out. Apparently, she never came by. Fast forward to this weekend, after a very rough and windy Saturday...
