Well, I like what I'm hearing. The forward lower shrouds are close to the rot but sound OK when I tap the deck though there is no guarantee they won't "pump" from wind and wave action. I have enough time to pull the forward chainplates for inspection and reinforce as needed. I'll Inspect the other chainplates and stem fitting closely and if they are OK I'll declare "Damn the core-rot, full speed ahead!" Thanks, Michael
