Changing to outboard chainplates is not quite as easy as moving them. The hull will have to be beefed up internally where they will be mounted. If you are paying for a yard or somebody to do this instead of doing it yourself it can get pretty expensive.

Here are a few links from Plastic Classic concerning chainplate mounting - external and otherwise. It is a popular topic there.

It is a site worth visiting as it is exclusively concerned with boats like yours and mine. Plastic Classic Forum • Index page
