All six chain plates of our IP are the original ones of 1994 18/32ft
Especially on older yachts chain plates need to be inspected regularly and if needed changed. That applies to all older boats, not IP in particular. But on those yachts this maintenance task is complicated and therefore very pricey.
In all IP they are being attached to the inside of the hull and covered with fiberglass. It’s a very strong design. But you cannot see if they are corroded or fine. Until you rip out the furniture and check them. And replace them as long as the entire boat interior lies in pieces anyway.
We are going to do that next year I think.
