    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    I think I just figured it out! Probably for reefing lines, right?

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Thanks for the info on the topping lift Jim! Would you know what function the rail with those two cars/blocks on the starboard side of the boom are for? I'm such a complete noob, and in watching a million hours of YouTube videos it's so rare to see an identical rigging setup to study.

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Oh okay, that makes sense! So the 1/8" cable with 5/16" line is certainly the topping lift as you stated above and as shown on the 7th page of the rigging pdf that you provided a link for (marked page 21 in the document). So it's pinned or bolted to the aft side of the masthead and that's why it...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Does anyone know if this picture that shows the combination wire/rope line on the aft side of my mast has a possibility of being anything other than the main halyard? The only other line coming from the aft side of the masthead looks like 3/8" poly and has a shackle with a captive pin that I...

    Hello @DayDreamer41! Right now I have her in Anchor Bay, and I've been planning to pull her out in a few weeks to winter on the Clinton River. Where do you keep Day Dreamer in Port Huron during the season and winter? Is it there space and how proud are they of it price wise? Port Huron is closer...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Hello glory30 and welcome to the forum! Have you been using your C30 in New York? Mine is in the located in MI and I live in CO, but I've been visiting her every other week or so. I haven't yet had a chance to hoist a sail, but I'm getting close. So far it's been mostly doing misc. repairs...

    I plan to upgrade my plumbing to add pressurized and heated water! Who can help me choose a heater?

    Hello Admiral! Yes, I did consider one of those small instant heaters. The reason that I will likely go with the OEM style heater (like the Kuuma) is because of it's ability to use my diesel engine cooling system to heat water when shore power isn't available. There are many ways to accomplish...

    I plan to upgrade my plumbing to add pressurized and heated water! Who can help me choose a heater?

    Thanks a bunch jssailem! That is a bit cheaper than the next best price I've seen. Were you referring to the Isotemp cylinder shaped ss heaters? I did some looking at them and absolutely like several of the features, but I'm also concerned about some reliability issues that they seem to maybe...

    I plan to upgrade my plumbing to add pressurized and heated water! Who can help me choose a heater?

    Hi Len, I'm actually ended up renting a slip on Lake St. Clair (in Fair Haven, MI) for the rest of this season. Next spring I plan to venture up into Huron and maybe beyond if I can find the time. Have you spent some time on Huron?

    I plan to upgrade my plumbing to add pressurized and heated water! Who can help me choose a heater?

    Hi Jim, That's interesting, do you know if the model you installed was the Kuuma 11811, or was it a similar model? This model has these dimensions: 19.75″ D x 13.75″ W x 13.625″. Where in your boat did you put it? I think I saw a drawing that showed they are typically under the quarter berth...

    I plan to upgrade my plumbing to add pressurized and heated water! Who can help me choose a heater?

    Hello all! I've decided to upgrade the plumbing on my 1986 C30 Mk2. It came with just the hand-pump faucets. I've already ordered a hose connection for shore-water, an electric water pump, little pressure tank, galley/head faucets, and a hosed showerhead that connects to the head faucet in place...

    Does anyone have this top plastic piece for a Jabsco manual pump?

    Thanks for the replies guys! Apex, what would you have to have to part with the non-locking pump? I hate the idea of not replacing one small cracked part rather than tossing the whole toilet, but the way the new pump covers are priced is a bit nonsensical too. I would like to keep the locking...

    Does anyone have this top plastic piece for a Jabsco manual pump?

    Hello! This plastic top piece off my Jabsco manual pump has a crack (appears to have fallen victim to incomplete winterizing). Does anyone have a old pump laying around that was removed from your head, and are willing to sell this piece at a reasonable price?

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Absolutely correct jssailem! The current name is "R Sanctuary" and it appears that the name used to be "Avilion" which I had never heard before. As I try to figure out how to piece together her history, this could prove to be useful info! Jeepbluetj, that's information that is certainly nice to...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Thanks for that! When I bought the boat I got a registration paper signed on the back that I'm pretty sure is just a state registration (MI). I'm going to have to research this. It sounds like I may or may not only need a federal registration?

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    I found a picture of my dodger frame. It's not a great photo, but you can see how it looks like yours apart from yours having 4 additional tubes with the associated jaw slides etc. In three days I'll be back at the boat and I'll look for a second set of attachment points (I guess maybe they're...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Thanks Ward! It looks like your dodger frame has clamp on pieces for the short horizontals and maybe also for the angled pieces that go down the deck on the aft end, is that correct? That might be what's going on with my dodger frame, it might be designed to have those clamp on piece. My frame...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Thanks Stu, I've studied the sequence for tensioning and tracked down the recommended tension spec's as well. The Loos gauge I bought is good for both the 3/16" and 14" cable, so I should be good there. As I gain some experience I suspect I might start developing some opinions things like back...

    I just bought a C30 yesterday!!

    Also... 13) The alternator looks original, so at some point an upgrade to a higher current one will likely be in order. 14) I would like to add a pump to make the water system pressurized, and maybe add a water heater at some point. 15) Solve the mystery regarding my dodger on the boat. It has...
