When I say glassed in, I mean they are encapsulated in the the fiberglass

To get at them, we will need to remove the wood cabinetry in the salon
. Big, invasive job, for sure.
The aft stay and staysail stay chainplates are easily accessible. We are replacing the aft stay chainplate and it was mildly embedded to the hull as well.
They are great boats. We are in the midst of major refit
and every time we pull up a sole plate or get behind a panel we are more impressed with how well the Compass 47 is designed and constructed.
