Re: Nauticat 38 Chainplates Pulling Through Deck?


Having looked through the technical issues raised over the years the only reference I have found was on a N44 and the following comment made by Richard Bartlett in 2005 (the Technical secretary then).

Early build NC44 reported chain plates visibly lifting from the deck whilst on overseas passage. Boat docked near to Nauticat Agent and investigation still in progress but overstressed rigging is suspected.
Siltala ‘beefed’ up these anchor points on later models so we can assume that this potential problem is confined to a small number of pre 1985 boats.
