Just purchased 38ft 1966 CCC sportfish. Has been "customized" electronically over the years. Currently has one 30 amps line for shore power. Shouldn't there be two with one dedicated to the air conditioning system? Also the bow hatch has a broken closing mechanism and therefore it leaks where can i get a replacement for it. Any help is appreciated HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

I’m fairly certain that boat didn’t come with air conditioning, hence the single 30 amp plug. 

The hatch has two rods that swivel and are attached to the casting.  In addition to the swivel they are threaded so you can adjust the tension when they are lifted over the latch.  If the cast attachment is broken you will need to look in the salvage parts sources, Earl the Pearl comes to mind (http://www.tourlakestclair.org/business-directory/Marine-Sales--Rep...).  If it is one of the rods then a work around could be devised.

Many of these boats were shipped with a single 30 amp inlet, mine included, that went to a breaker box with two 30 amp brakers for distribution to the various outlets, lights and cook tops.  I added a second inlet and changed  the distribution panel.

thank you very much for your reply. what you have described is exactly what i an looking at for both the electrical and hatch. going to put in a second 30 amp feed as well. the front hatch is missing the bar on the left side and the one on the right is stripped in the casting so it does not hold tension. Will start with the source you sent me Tim

Hi Mike i will get pics loaded. it has three knobs on the starboard side of the lower helm for air conditioning. Currently tracing the wiring in order to add a second 30 amp feed
