I have for sale a complete topping lift assembly for a Mk 1 or Mk 1.5 C34.

$80 shipped to the continental USA.  AK/HI/international will have to pay a bit extra depending on location.  No shipping to Belarus or the Russian Federation. Included is a new topping lift wire (attaches at mast head), a new Harken block, and new control line.  All unused.

We accidentally ordered 2, and Catalina Direct doesn't allow returns on line or custom rigging, so I am posting this here for sale to anyone that needs one and wants to save a few bucks. 

As long as this post is still up and I haven't replied, it is still available.

We pulled out all of the pieces for revarnishing last summer. I'm pretty sure the bottom of that piece in the galley was rounded to accommodate the curvature of the liner. There were no spacers or shims of any sort.

This helps a lot, thanks for passing it along.  it definitely makes fabrication of a new piece more of a PITA, but at least points me in the right direction.

I am the newest owner of C34 #161 "Windarra", we moved her to Chicago last summer.

This might be a long shot, but I am missing the section of my teak and holly cabin sole in the companionway/galley are completely, as well as the kick panel in the aft cabin (yes, we factored this into the purchase agreement), and it would be an incredible time saver if I could somehow make an accurate template from someone else's pieces, or at least get an idea of what is going on between the liner and the sole pieces in the galley - the fiberglass liner has a bit of a concavity to it, and I am wondering how the leveling of the wood pieces is achieved (I believe there are 2 with a seam in the center).

I have reason to believe there are shims, standoffs, bungs, or a radiused bottom to the floor pieces, but I have no point of reference as to how the floor was installed at the factory.  I would like to keep it in line with the original design because I am just that kind of person.  I did talk to Catalina but they said the plans/design/jigs are long gone.

I am in Chicago, and for posterity's sake I am thinking of creating a CAD file for all the individual pieces of the floor that I do have, and if I can make new pieces or get my hands on original pieces that I am missing from another boat I could get those into that file.  I could publicly share this CAD file for all Mk1/Mk1.5 users, and then we'd all have the option to mill out new cabin soles on a CNC.  HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?!?!?  :D

If anyone knows whats going on under there as far as the leveling goes, that would help out a bunch.  At least then I could woodwork a new piece in there and take my measurements from that for the CAD project.

Does anyone know how the galley area is leveled?  Or are the pieces just sitting directly on the fiberglass liner?

Hello folks,
I just bought #161 "Windarra" ('86 C34 Mk1) this last summer, had her trucked from Bayfield WI (Lake Superior) to Port Washington WI, and took her south to Chicago from there. Looking to connect with other Southern Lake Michigan C34 owners in the area.  I am a member at Columbia Yacht Club and moor in Monroe Harbor. I know some of you are around, I have seen you out there! :)
