Ericson 27--chain plates/blisters

I am considering buying an Ericson 27. We are considering a 1971 Ercison 27; however, it had a problem with chain plates and was demasted a few years back. As well, there were blisters on the botton side of the hull. We are also considering a 1974 Ericson 27 which has no signs of either of these problems. does anyone know if there is a problem with the Ericsons in terms of fiberglass or is the 1971 boat an exception? Thanks in advance,

Laurie

Ericsons were known for having a variety of resin problems throughout the 1970''s.
