    C30 MKII main shaft pulley and v belt clearance with the M25XP

    Good to know.... looks like I'm on the right track then! Hopefully my engine and engine compartment looks 1/2 as nice or clean as yours when I am done with all the projects this winter!

    C30 MKII main shaft pulley and v belt clearance with the M25XP

    Before I go and start cutting out a notch into the lip of the cabin sole/cabin settee, thought it prudent to ask for some advise. I am going to be replacing both the v belt and the front engine case cover (already acquired a good used one.) The installation of the M25XP in the new to me 1988...

    Universal M-25XP or M-25 speed control screw or highspeed fuel mixture

    Thanks for all the links and suggestions. Lots of reading to do, and few groups to join. The pic is not my engine, but confirming which bracket is installed and or updating to the new design is on the short list. 1st item is just getting the new raw water pump installed and moved into my own...

    Universal M-25XP or M-25 speed control screw or highspeed fuel mixture

    So I got a bit ham fisted when removing my raw water pump this past weekend on my new to me Catalina 30. In the process, I removed the speed control adjusting bolt, number 1 in the parts diagram, red circled item just above the raw water pump in the second picture. From my understanding this...

    Fin keel dimensions shoal vs standard

    Agree, unfortunately I do not have a picture of the hull when hung for the previous survey, nor does the broker have an electronic version of it. The old printed version of the survey, which I have only seen and do not possess, includes a small 1x1 photo taken at angle from the port bow. I...

    Fin keel dimensions shoal vs standard

    Thanks for the input thus far. I may give Catalina a call tomorrow to see if they have any input and or dimensions of the two fin keels for when its hung for a survey. I've seen a number of 86,87, and even an 88 listed that should be a MKII according to conventional wisdom, yet still had the...

    Fin keel dimensions shoal vs standard

    I'm looking at an 88 C30 where the owner really isn't a sailor or very knowledgeable about boats in general, even his own boat (been using it as a pied de terre of sorts.) He is unsure of the keel, I am only interested in the standard 5'3" draft keel here in the San Francisco Bay. To muddy...

    C30 MKiii length over all - how did the addition of the sugar scoop swim platform affect length?

    Thanks for the insight thus far. I’ve looked and analyzed and re analyzed drawings and pictures.... Lol. Analysis paralysis. I should go to straight to the horses mouth and call Catalina. Thought they might not be interested in helping be it a used out of production boat. We have had a few...

    C30 MKiii length over all - how did the addition of the sugar scoop swim platform affect length?

    Shopping hard for a C30 MKii or MKiii. I am length limited in my San Francisco slip, and know that a MKii will fit with a small minor modification to the bow pulpit after an in person measurement. Inches do matter to my harbor master, and I don't have much to give over a MKii. I don't have...
