1984 EY30+ Ludington, MI
Trying to find out when and why there was a design change made in the E30+. From various posts over the last year I have found significant differences in this model that occurred in 1984 & between hull #632(mine) & #637(Frank Langer's). Seems there are substantial differences throughout the design and systems. For repair & research purposes here on the site getting advice or specs from another 30+ owner can lead to a whole lot of head scratching do to these production changes if their hull was on the other side of that change. I think the most obvious key to weather you have a 30+ 1st gen or 2nd gen is the placement of the traveler. If you have a bridge deck traveler you have a 1st gen, cabin top traveler is a 2nd gen. There are many other changes that happened all the way down to the keel. The keel bolt pattern and size is different so is the keel stub different ? Which in turn would mean the hull shapes are different, maybe ? So if you have a 30+ with hull number 633,634,635, or 636 where is your traveler ? For now I think its important when seeking advice to know which generation you have and to be sure you are getting info about same or you will think you are going crazy !
