I'm just halfway through inspecting and restoring my 12 exterior chainplates on my 37 year old Morgan....

This before and after condition is so much more difficult with the embedded interior chainplates. I have a friend with a Hardin that has bleeding from embedded plates,- I would dread the complexity. I've owned my vessel for 25 years. It's an important factor if you plan longevity. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
