Re: Opinions on a '71 Contest 30

I know that this is a very old thread, but I will ask anyway. Does anyone know if the Contest 30s from the late 60s, early 70s (early Van Essen design) had lead or iron ballast? I can only find specs on the later 30s which are much different. I hope to hear from someone. Thanks ____Grant.

Re: Opinions on a '71 Contest 30

Walkmart, I have to agree, the gelcoat is pretty bad, and there is no engine, but that is accounted for in the price. Since yours was a similar vintage Contest, do you remember if it had iron or lead ballast????. ______Grant.
