    Seatalk...whotalk..metalk...please talk?

    Well, I did it. I bought a 1997 Catalina 380 and one of the things I had on my C-30 was a chartplotter (depth included). It was a Humminbird, but it was very convenient. The new to me boat has wind, depth, auto and gps, but no actual chart plotter. I have some question concerning current setup...

    Ground height of a 380 for trucking purposes.

    The one measurement I cannot find. I want to get estimates to truck a Catalina 380 to me. They need the height measurement without the mast for trucking. It has to be less than 13' 6" to get under normal DOT bridges. I'm hoping that is the case...hate to have to look into removing all the...

    Sloppy shifting lever

    Hi guys, Been a hectic summer. For everyone I am sure. I spent all of March, April and May (and June) removing all the hardware on the boat (1977 Catalina 30...): drilling out the holes, filling holes with silicone so they wouldn't leak until I could get to them; spending a week cleaning that...

    DPDT wiring question

    Hello everyone. I did some major rehaul on my 77' Catalina 30. One of the things I had to do was troubleshoot the LED Tri-Color/Anchor light on the mast, which I had pulled. The light was fried, I suppose after 9 years, I shouldn't be too upset, but the light was almost $400 then. I reordered...

    Flush mount flag pole socket

    Hi, I want to replace the flush mounted flag pole socket on the boat. It is very corroded. But searching everywhere, all I seem to come up with is a straight 10 degree canted socket that will accept a flag pole, but doesn't really lock into place...except because of the angle of the cant...

    Rebedding Chainplates & Painting Suggestions

    Hello all. Biting the bullet this year. I've began stripping all the equipment off deck so that I can repaint it. Quite the project and it's become a rabbit hole! I even removed the Edson steering pedestal! (this is a 1977 C-30...so she's old!!!!) First question: I removed the main shroud...

    Spring Painting Project

    Hello all, I have a few questions. I plan on painting the deck of my boat this spring. She's a 1977 C-30....and all that that implies! I began stripping all the hardware this past winter and will finish up this March and April. I attached a pic below for reference. I need to replace the teak...

    Freeze Plug question...

    A not so uncommon woe.... Got caught in Upstate NY by the cold weather before I could winterize boat. In a panic, I tried to do it a few weeks ago when I was in town, but the bilge was frozen solid (I still cannot figure out where the water is coming from!!!!) I have a tee that allows me to...

    Shorter than normal 5/16 turnbuckle?

    Hi there guys. Haven't had to post in awhile, been able to avoid the ever present gremlins that are always stalking my boat! Till this week that is. Was out on Lake Ontario Tuesday, enjoying 20-25kt winds and rolling 3-5'. Only had the jib set and probably a 1/3 of that at best. Was a perfect...

    Electrical Troubleshooting...God I hate these questions!

    Hello; I typically cruise this forum and try to add my 2 cents or pictures whenever needed, but usually there are others more qualified than myself who answer. I have a 1977 C-30 which I rewired 6-7 years ago. With a LOT of help from this forum and posters such as Stu. I have had no problems at...

    Genoa low lead car installation

    After stepping on the old genoa sheet cars I purchased new ones from Garhauer. I have searched and searched for something.. a picture...something! Which way to do they go on the genoa/jib tracks on the Catalina 30? I installed them both ways with pics. In one, the quick release for the car is...

    Boat wouldn't start

    I've put up a few posts over the past few years concerning my boat's refusal to start properly. Typical issue with Atomic 4, mid 70's boat. I would turn key and wouldn't get anything. Over the past few years, I replaced the coil, points and I had already rewired most of the original wiring in...

    Not really about sailing...

    I was in San Diego for business a few weeks ago and I took my son. While eating breakfast at the Edgewater Grill, we saw the USS Ronald Reagan going through refit and resupply across the bay. I mentioned how cool it would be to actually see a huge naval ship come by while people were eating...

    Trouble starting boat...once again

    I believe I posted something last year about this and want some thoughts. I have a 1977 Catalina 30 with the Atomic 4 engine. The coil, plugs, points etc are all new. I moved the engine gauges to the back of the boat about 6 years ago with new wiring. All 12 awg marine wiring. This includes...

    Overflowing head

    I checked a couple of threads via Google on this. Today I was out in force 5 winds today coming from the west so I was on a port tack heading north out on Lake Ontario. About an hour or so into it I thought I smelled odors from the bilge. When I went down below the head was completely full...

    Just a little braggin'

    On my first cruise this spring, I stupidly took the boat out in 25+ kt winds and 4-6' seas. Certainly not the smartest thing to do on your first shakedown cruise. :eek: But I just had to get out there and scream at the wind. Thankfully, the only thing that happened was that EVERYTHING down...

    Spring cleaning the marine head

    I really wanted to title the post "Lubing my marine head" ...but it sounded a bit too 'silly' When I'm adding Teflon grease to the head to keep everything good, where do I put the grease. There are a number of possible openings around the pump area and I'm not sure exactly where to go, the...

    Inverter wiring

    While re-doing the batteries, I am going to install a few 12v recepticles for my computer and cell phone. I also want to install a 1000watt inverter. I'll replace the current A/C breaker with one that does not allow shore power AND the inverter to supply power. Currently the A/C breaker is...
