Any C&C redwing 30 owners here

Greetings

Trying to refurbish my newly acquired 1968 Redwing 30. Anyone here own one? I would appreciate any kind of wiring diagram. My boat has a rats nest type of wiring. It has evidently had a lot of owners that added and changed things on the boat with no real system of wiring. I had rewired the mast for anchor and steaming lights but now must run wiring through the boat to the power panel. Same with lights in cabin and head. Same with depth finder and so forth. Any one that feels like giving me info on this type of boat is welcomed

Thanks in advance
sailr

Re: Any C&C redwing 30 owners here

Just saw your post. I have a 1969 red wing hull #61. I rewired most of my boat. I used generic diagram for a two battery bank setup. Replaced and moved my battery selector switch. Used an atomic 4 wiring diagram for the engine.

Don't worry about how it was wired. Go with how it should be wired.

Re: Any C&C redwing 30 owners here

Glad to hear from you tigerzilly. I have a 1968 C&C Redwing 30 hull #39. I have started to do the rewire, Kinda sorta following the old wiring route. I've had to do a few different routes for the wires, but so far its going OK. My problem is that it seems the wiring has all positive wires and just one common ground. Oh well I'll figure out a plan and get her done.


Thanks

I used to have a 1972 Hull #107 I recall. Nicely built boat. The wiring on mine was pretty much original. Very basic I recall.
Raced her a lot and cruised a lot too. Enjoyed her for sure.

I replaced all my electrical wire with anchor duplex cable. I added a terminal strip by the back side of the electric panel for all the grounds. I moved the battery bank to the cockpit locker so they sit behind the electric panel. I replaced lights with leds.

I'll take pics when I'm at the boat this weekend.

Thanks Tigerzlily

I would love to see photos of what you have done. Might give me some ideas on tackling mine. The terminal post are sure not easy to get to. The control panel is no picnic either.

I moved the battery bank to the port side cockpit locker behind the electric panel. It shortened my wire runs to the batteries, but the batteries are not as accessible. Here's a pic of storage area were the batteries once were.Click image for larger version

Gives me some ideas. I have the old lights from the boat and cleaned and refurbished so they are in good shape.


Thanks again
