  CC27 height from keel to cabin top (Anna69)

Hi folks,

In anticipation of my deck repairs next winter I am searching for a garage or barn to move my 1976 mark iii into. Anyone know the total height of the boat from bottom of keel to top of cabin?  

Thanks
R.

This may not be be quite the answer you're looking for but here's a value calculated by measuring a high-res copy of the photo at http://www.cc27association.com/guide/source/mk4cradle.html
The photo is shot square on to the boat, so the measurements ought to be fairly accurate.
Length is 1513 pixels (length of hull only) and the height is 580 pixels; the length given for the boat is 27.9' (approx), so 580/1513 x 27.9 equals 10.7 ft. (approx). This value includes an additional approx. 6 inches for the "feet" that the club attaches to our cradles to simplify handling.
If a 27 gets hauled in the next little while, I will try to measure it.

Hey R.

This web-page has a link to another C and C site where you'll find an "Alladin's Cave" of info.  Among that stuff is a copy of the original C &C 27 Mk 111 brochure giving the mast height above the water as 41 feet. I've never measured  it but have always used  this number for clearance under bridges and power lines--- There's a marina nearby which I can't get to with Aragorn --- the power line strung across the entrance there is too low .
 Given that the "P" figure for the Mark 111 is 31 feet, if you measure from the gooseneck fitting ( "x" feet)to the mast step, you can easily figure the distance from the mast step down to the waterline .
 41 - 31= 10 feet from the gooseneck to the waterline minus "x" =  above water height of the hull . Add the draught of 4 ' 6" and you'll find you needed clearance ( except  that the hatch cover is a little higher than the mast step and as Dave suggests , you'll need a bit of room under the cradle as well)

I measured a 27 Mk III on fairly level ground, stored in a Marine Cradle shop cradle on 6" blocking; the combination of cradle and blocking puts the bottom of the keel 14.5" off the ground. From the ground to the top of the toerail at the aft end of the coachroof is 98". From the top of the toerail to a line extending from the top of the spray hood is 28".

From the ground to the top of the bow pulpit (highest point), is exactly 12 feet.
