Re: Replacing Chainplates on a Sabre 34

Good point about changing the location. I hadn't thought about how it would affect the design. I wouldn't want to mess with that.

After dreaming about owning my own boat (some tell me it's a masochist's dream) ever since stepping on that old 43' Alden when I was 19, finding this boat gave me the opportunity to realize that dream, even though I'd have to come up with the money to fix it before I could sail it. Just being on it would be enough, for a while. But it's like buying a house, once you own it, you find ways to make it liveable.

Still, it's tempting. Maybe I could build a pond in my back yard and put it in there and when I need a fix I walk out the back door and hop aboard and play pirate. And if my imagination isn't child-like enough, there's always rum!
