  For Sale - 1972 C & C 27 Mk I (admin)
Posted: 4:05:50 pm on 5/26/2014 Modified: Never
“Infinite Roses” of Falmouth, Maine.  1972 C & C 27 Mk I.  Beautiful boat, lovingly owned, sailed (and expensively!) rebuilt from the keel up between 1991 and 1998.
Owner (me/Richard) moved overseas (Greece and Saudi Arabia) in 2002 and sold boat to good friend (Eddie), who also loved/sailed boat.  Eddie started boat-building company South U.S. with plans to use “Infinite Roses” in summers after business got off the ground.  Business failed and boat was never used again. L
So a lot of great boat gear is available, and it’s going cheap, because Eddie can’t come up from South, and I’m only in States and available (son’s graduation J) for one of the days of the week of June 2nd.
So if you need boat stuff there are some great buys—and especially if you’ve got a C&C 27 you want to update.  All gear is top of the line, overbought/made, has been stored/lofted indoors in heated storage.
The ‘catch’ is that I really have only a short week (and really only one day) to meet with you and sell it.  (The upside is, that we’ve priced everything to “move” on that day!)
All gear is at Uncle Bob’s Storage (formerly Access Storage) on Foden Road in South Portland, Maine, where we’ll plan to meet so you can see it and choose.  Please contact me early so we can make arrangements convenient to both your and my (brief!) schedule.  You can contact me (Richard Harriman) as follows:

I have a question that might be of general interest.. Does a MkI boom fit a MkIII mast? ( gooseneck specifically ), I understand a new bail would need to be installed. For the long term plan I have I find my current boom a bit weak, especially since I went with a loose footed main ( no outhaul on mine, just a small, 4 in. ss plate that binds.

The MK I boom should be a bit longer than the MK III and possibly could be set up for roller reefing. What are the width and height measurements of your boom and I can check mine. Possibly/probably the same tube?

I will only be able to measure this week-end, but it is fairly slim, about 2 3/4 width and height of 3 1/4 , still original, with C&C black logo on it..
