Thanks Paul, good to hear. We have a few here, and one sold recently, but I currently don't have room to store one, which is one of the advantages of a trailerable.
Ever since I first saw one at Gimli (a major harbour on Lake Winnipeg), I was intrigued by it's narrow beam, and performance oriented design. (and I like C&C's in general) The idea of setting one up as a performance cruiser by adding a small number of amenities was what almost made me jump on it when it came up for sale.

Looks like you stuck a good compromise between additional ammenities and extra weight.

Thanks...95% of the time it is just my 130 lb wife and I aboard.
My added extra weight might be comparable to that of a male crew of four, and their cooler full of 'refreshments' enjoying a good day of sailing on a typical factory equipped boat.
All perspective I suppose...none the less a fun, a well appointed good size vessel now, still non-reliant on travel lifts for haul out, cranes for stepping the mast, or cradles and storage fees.
Happy fella here.

Hello, I just bought a C&C Mega 30 and am having trouble finding replacement windows. Can you help with a source for any replacement parts for the Mega?

You won't find replacement windows...you will have to make them, or have them made from polycarbonate. Installing them will take time and patience.
Find a local plastics warehouse...take them the old ones and have them duplicate them.
Be sure to oversize the holes slightly for the thru bolts to allow for expansion & contraction.
Bed the polycarbonate with about an 3/16" thick by 1" wide strip of butyl tape around the entire perimeter.
Fasten the flat portions of the windows first, working forward and gradually apply pressure as you install the fasteners around the curve of the cabin top...I did this over a two day period in the hot sun. Use very low heat to warm the polycarbonate as you go, if the ambient temperature is too low.
Trim excess butyl, clean surface and apply caulking around the edges.

I am having great difficulty raising and lowering the dagger board. Does anyone have any advice on rebuilding it? And I would like to add the electric motor. I would also like to know if anyone has added a j-sprit to a c&c mega.

I have some photos, drawings etc. that I saved from another old Mega 30 site.
Let me know if you would like me email them to you.

Do you know where to buy a keel motor?
I believe you can buy them off amazon...
They are also a popular winch in the off-roading industry. You can get one from a Hully Gully, Power Garage, Etc.,....or I think even Princess Auto them at one point, possibily online.
