Chainplate Inspection w/Rigging Up
Wonder if any of you have experience removing/inspecting/replacing the chainplate for your aft stay while the rigging is still up. I intend to replace that chainplate on my T37 and would prefer not to take the mast down to do it. How can this be done safely? Should I use a halyard run aft to keep tension on the mast while removing the aft stay?
Any tips or experiences woudl be much appreciated.
