Question New Member from Toronto ON

I bought my first boat after taking the CYA course at the TS&CC in Etobicoke Ontario. I bought a 1976 C&C 24 a couple of weeks ago but missed the TS&CC haul out date as I didn't have a cradle at the time.
I called the Marine Cradle Shop and they said: "sorry you are out of luck!... 'cause we are booked until November and we will close shop."
My plan B option was to winter store the boat by blocking it at the Toronto Island Marina which is accesible by ferry.
However, the guys at the TS&CC found an abandoned baseplate frame and let me have it. They advise me to put it on casters to move it after haulout. I hired a welder willing to assist me in the project and put together a boat cradle on casters. Total cost about $1,000.00
I took my mast down with my GF, both newbies to sailing but had some help in the form of oral instructions. Unfortunately, the furling clevis pin fell in the water.
Does anyone have a spec on the clevis pin for a 1976 C&C 24 furling jib-genoa?

Welcome fellow Canuck.

Sorry I cannot help with the clevis pin. Bummer.
