Re: Accessing Chainplates
A Pearson 32 that I looked at (before buying my 28-2) had them buried in some cabinets. It didn't appear that they could be inspected without disassembling the cabinets. I actually walked away from the boat since I couldn't easily inspect them for leaks.
I thought that this was a custom feature on that specific boat, but maybe it is a general one?
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
