I have a vintage Allied
Luders 33, which has the infamous glassed in chainplates for the lower shrouds. The uppers are exposed bolted to structural stringers on the inside of the hull
I realize that I will have to bite the bullet eventually and remove the glassed in chainplates and replace them, although right now there is no evidence of water
Two questions for all of you out there?
1. How does one remove glassed in chainplates for inspection
2. Why are more chainplates not made out of bronze rather than stainless? Shouldn't the use of bronze eliminate the concer for crevice corrosion
