Ok, all you Sailors, This is the stbd chainplate from the top, It bolts to a piece that is bolted to the hull with those big slotted screw heads! Where am I gonna find a screwdriver to fit them? No, that's not the real question. What can I expect to find underneath that top plate, if/ when I unbolt it? Is the deck cut out around it or is the deck between the two pieces? I can look tomorrow, but I forgot to look today. This is a 1971 Morgan 35 MK 2. I was gonna call a local rigger and see what he had to say, since I need his advice on how to loosen and where to loosen the shrouds. Just wondered what you guys had to say. Thanks, Kevin

So, Dennis the rigger came by and said the rig was new. The previous owner told me it was all replaced 2 yrs ago but, couldn't find the receipts. Dennis showed me how to stabilize the rig with main halyard and spare halyard and how to loosen one side and all. Sounds pretty basic and I'm sure I can handle it. Might not do it till next week. Got four days off and wanna go out and sail around a little and maybe dive on the bottom and clean her. Sewing forepeak cushions at home, right now. Durn thing! cut all the boxing, the sides of the cushion, for four inches. Then just before I started the zipper plaque, I thought I'd check it for fit and the durned cushion was 5 inches thick! Aargghhh!!!! I shouldn't complain, more cushion, more comfort, I reckon. So, I'll keep you informed. Kevin
