Re: Replacing Chainplates on the Water

I have a Pearson 28, the model that came after the Triton and Pearson used Schaefer chainplates for it. Look to see if they did also for the Triton and sourcing them that way would eliminate the delay of having them fabricated locally. I would think that the two halyards would be sufficient support for when one of the uppers is removed. However, there are some pretty sever winds in that part of the country and would want to minimize the time the shroud was removed.
