Apparently the owner posted a message about this issue in the Pearson section. Agreed that aluminum plates would be most unusual there and were probably an add on by someone who thought he had a better idea. I asked the owner what year the boat is to gauge whether it might be one made by the Cal-Pearson group in the mid-90's, after the original Pearson went belly up in 1991. The Cal-Pearson boats that were made (probably no more than a handful) were built by Bristol Yachts, which itself went bankrupt in the mid-90's pulling Cal-Pearson down with it. Anyway, those boats could have some strange things in them.
