Does anyone out there know the dimensions for the mast spreaders? i.e. length, o.d., i.d., notches. thanks for the help

Iain,  on this site go to "links and contacts", then down to "parts and service", and click on "Klacko Spars".
Danny Klacko's shop is located on the East side of Third Line , south of the QEW.
His place is a treasure trove of masts and their parts and rigging, so a used set of spreaders might be there somewhere.
Where are you and your spreaderless boat?

Hi Alan, I appreciate that.. I actually gave Klacko a call they dont have any but said they could make them for $200.. I'm pretty handy and am capable of making a set myself but lack the dim's. Myself and newly purchased "c-scape" are located at Port Credit Marina in Mississauga, Toronto.

Iain, some thoughts before you set off on a do-it-yourself' spreader replacement.
To continue being a "C&C 27" the spreaders must be "aluminum", and most of the boat needs to remain as built by C&C.
The connection of the spreader to the mast could be tricky, as could the outer end fittings, which not only keep the uppers in position but also stop them from cutting into  the main (aluminum) section of the spreaders.
On top of this the spreaders' failure to withstand the very large compression loading when reaching in a blow could lead to the need for a new mast and all it's bits and pieces.............
Others with more experience than me, and with good skills in metal fabrication, might
disagree, but Klacko's $200 offer sounds OK to me.

Alan, I may end up having to go the Klacko route if I cant get specs and like you said $200 isnt too bad. I plan on trying to keep the the boat a true "c&c 27". The numb skull who I bought the boat from ripped out all  the cabinetry and counter tops when pulling the motor so all that has to be rebuilt. Good summer project
