IP 27 issues

I'm considering putting an offer on an Ip 27. The po tells me that the chainplate for the bobstay was heavily corroded and was rewelded to repair. Is this a common problem or should I be digging deeper to find put why it needed repair.

As I cast off for that very first time,
The "rope" in my hand has now become "line".
And hauling the sails to the top of the mast,
That "rope", now a "halyard" holds strong, taught and fast.
Then sailing in brisk winds full force on a beat.
The sails are trimmed in by that "rope" that's a "sheet".
And now at my anchorage with sails safely stowed,
I trust in that "rope" that now serves as a "rode".
Through all my life I will never lose hope,
Of a reason or time to play with a rope.

Re: IP 27 issues

Let me rephrase the question...for those of you familiar with this make/model.... is there a particular known problem with the chainplates on this boat...particularly with the bobstay? Im wondering if at sometime in the past the sewage holding tank leaked and caused the corrosion... Any thoughts?? Anyone have any experience with this particular boat and this problem?

Re: IP 27 issues

There is an IP 27 in Clearwater, Fl with this problem. The fix is to remove all of the forward bunk, grind out the existing chainplate and the glass securing it and then replace everything with new chainplate and securing glass. It takes about $2500.00 to $3000.00 Plus a haul and block. Already checked it out. Takes about a week and a half to do.

Re: IP 27 issues

Yes, chain plates are an issue for all boats, as they are basically a replaceable item, but especially much so for the IP. Island Packet beds the chain plates into the fiberglass of the hull. this causes multiple problems. First it is impossible to inspect without cutting the hull apart. Second it encourages corrosion, as stainless will corrode most effectively without oxygen being present. Third it makes it extra hard to replace. While it does have two good points, one is that it is a fairly strong way to mount the plates, till they corrode, secondly it is the cheapest way to mount them. (at least the first time, and that is the main thing the builder cares about) When you figure the most common way of knowing an embedded chainplate is corroded is that the rig comes down, it is an issue. I cannot see how "re-welding" would be an acceptable fix.

I think Island Packets have some nice features, I just think they made some strange shortcuts when they build them. It is to be expected in a more price driven boat, but not on an expensive boat like an Island Packet. I also really dislike the way they bury tanks in spots very hard to replace, and the concrete in the ballast, just not high end features. In my humble opinion.
