Re: Cost to Replace Chainplates? Should I Walk Away?
As the OP on this thread I should follow up on the title of this post.
I just did walk away from the Passport 40 this week. Long flight to WA to check it out. Needed new teak deck, engine oil in bilge, chainplates looked bad, leaks from saloon windows, ugliest mast I've ever seen -painted brown, mainsail shot, several diesel leaks, smelly head, dodger shot, rig had issues etc, etc.
BUT fantastic news!!!! I'm closing on an amazingly good shape Nordic 44 next week.
Congratulations on your new purchase! Make sure to post some pics and let us know how new ownership is going.
