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!

Go to http://cncphotoalbum.com, sign up for the email list and ask your question there.

 

There's a bunch of 37+ owners and a lot more with other boats and many opinions, I'm sure someone knows.

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.

I have a 1990 C&C 37/40 XL. The mast in my boat is from Off Shore Spars. Take a look at their online store.
