1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

Hello I'm new here, and just seeing if there are anymore owners of C&C 35 on here.

I've owned mine for four years now. Also in Nova Scotia.

If anyone else is around I'd love hear hear any upgrades or improvements you've made.

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

I've got an 83 Mk III and love it. Mostly I am on cncphotoalbum.com.

Great boats, great owners.

Adding a manual faucet in the head. Will make the admiral very happy. I've replaced every hose, line, pump, hatch lense, clutch ...

Feel free to ask any questions.

Joel

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

I'll check out that site you mentioned.

Maybe I'll add a manual faucet the same time I replace my shower drain bilge (doesn't pump anymore)

What kind of engine do you have in yours? I have a yanmar 20hp model 3gmf. I've had a few issues with over heating lately, and wonder if you had any issues and what you may have done to solve such a problem.

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

Overheating is normally an impeller, a thermostat, or very likely at your age, a heat exchanger which needs an acid bath at your local radiator shop.

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

I've changed the impeller before (should still be okay atm).

A new thermostat. Maybe a good idea. But now that you mentioned it, I think the heat exchanger is giving me my issues.

Thanks for the advice,
Brandon

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

Since my last post I have resolved the over heating issue.

The main cause was I found a piece(s) of the impeller got sucked up the tube and was clogged at the inlet of the heat exchanger. After I got those out I also cleaned out the heat exchanger my self. And it was super easy I used a solution call Barnacle buster and worked wonders. I just used a 5 gallon bucket, a bilge pump, and two tubes to connect the bilge pump to the inlet of the heat exchanger and the other from the back of it lead back to the bucket.

I also replaced the mixing elbow last spring when I cleaned out everything else. Click image for larger version

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

Last year I also added solar panels to the boat. I ordered them from amazon after looking around at many different options. And felt they had good reviews on them and priced good.

They were called Renogy. I got two 50w square solar panels because I wanted the panels to be on the stern on either side of the swim latter. Click image for larger version

I did the installation myself, and it was pretty straight forward. Only part I had to rig up customly was mounting the panels to the rails. I used two BBQ mounts per solar panel to hold them.Click image for larger version

Then I had to run all the wires the least invasive way possible and went through a vent in the stern, then ran the wires along the starboard side to the navigation table where I was going to put the MPPT charge controller before connecting to the battery's.Click image for larger version

I also hooked up a lcd display screen to show me charging and battery information. In my opinion is worth the extra money.Click image for larger version

Nice work! Sold my 35 last year, but will always have great memories.

Re: 1984 C&C 35 mkIII owners

Thank you, and they are great boats I hope I'll never have to get rid of this one.

It's up on the hard right now waiting for the spring so I can redo the C&C smile and probably repaint the bottom. Then it should be good to get back in the water for the season.
