      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Boom Sheaves in a 1990 C&C 37+

Recommended Posts

I have a new (to me) C&C 37+ and need to replace all 6 sheaves in the boom (inboard and outboard reefing lines and outhaul). All 6 appear to be original (1990). The outhaul was wire and I am replacing it with Dyneema. Each sheave (plastic for the reefing lines and aluminium for the outhaul) is 51 mm od (2 3/8), 13 mm id (1/2) and 16 mm (7/16) wide. The width is the problem, they each have their own channel and I cannot find ones that take a 1/2" pin but are only 7/16" wide.

 

Help?

 

Thanks!

My mast (C&C 35-3) supposedly came from the C&C spar shop. Klacko built a lot of the early masts, but I think C&C had an internal shop for a while.

Klacko says they built the masts for "24,25,26,27,30,33,34,38,40,43,51, and all custom".

Edit: My spar drawings say the mast is the same extrusion as used on the 34, but I know that at least two different extrusions were used on the 35-3's.
