New boat and member

Hi
Just signed up. Purchased a 1982 Mainship 30 a few weeks ago.Survey went well. It has a Yanmar 170 hp. installed in 2002. It is in the yard now and no major problems so going ahead with bottom job and buff and polish.
I have not been able to uncover very much info on this model. Help
there would be appreciated.
We plan on doing river cruising out of Florida Gulf Coast.
Thanks in advance to all.

Don't remember any Mainship 30 in the early '80s. I only remember the 34, the 36, and I think a 40.


Pictures?

Having just purchased a Mainship myself, I went thru google and downloaded every Mainship owner's manual I could find. Unfortunately there isn't one for my specific boat, nor is a Mainship 30' listed, however, if you pm me your contact info, I'll be happy to send the PDF file of what I've got to you. You may or may not find something useful.

There is lots of good cruising grounds all along the coast, also bayous, bays and beaches.

Enjoy it!

You surprised me on that one. I must admit I didn't know the Apalachicola River was navigable all that distance. I'd heard of people paddling it. I'd love to hear from others who have run it.

Don't leave the Tenn Tom to the Tennessee out of your ultimate plans, even if not initial.

I believe you can get as far as Lake Eufala. Lock around the Walter F George dam.

They say they maintain a channel 9' deep and 100' wide up to Columbus, GA. I've never known anyone to take the river up there. Three locks on the way. Definitely have me interested now. I love Apalachicola.

My other question is fuel. I see one place that sells gas but not many and no diesel is obvious at first look.

Calling anyone who has taken this trip.

Apalachicola is one of our favorite spots too we haven't been up the river but it sounds like a nice trip.

File was helpful. Did not know the front windows were not glass.
Manuals for A/C,refrig.,head,etc. were still on board. Still have some papers to go thru. Plastic box of stuff under the bunk.
Thanks again.

That sure looks like a 34 to me. Should run good with that Yanmar.

You'll find lots of information on the Yahoo Mainship Group site.
