I received the following email from Bent Schroeder:

Just got Elmer on the water. The plan was to raise masts at the same time.Unfortunately the former owner could not find the spreaders for both masts, do you think that someone in the forum can tell me the exact length of the spreaders, the I hope I can get 2 new sets produced. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone help?

Just been up my masts & measured my Main-mast spreader for you. The spreader looks like it’s almost exactly 1.00 metre or +/- 39+1/2” to the edge of the mast. I could’nt get it absolutely exact as I have plastic mouldings on the spreader ends with the shrouds running through them, so can’t see the actual end of the spreader. I think I’ve pretty much got it right though & the shroud would be about 10mm further than that, each side, due to sitting at the end of the plastic moulding.
Mizzen-mast, ditto re’ the plastic mouldings but appears to be 745mm or 29+3/8ths” to the edge of the mast.
I would’nt think it’s absolutely critical, as long as the length is within say, 10-15mm.?
Hope this helps,
Jeff
