Steves tip "When removing the old chain plate unscrew with care. Older Darts with sail number 1000 upwards will have a backing plate bonded into the super structure and this will not fall off".
Any boats older than 1000 ,
Steves comment "In my experience I have fitted several of these and each time I lost 1 or all of the nuts of the back, this then inolves drilling 3 holes in the deck to form a slot and taping on a nut to a spanner to re-fit plate. A hull fibre glass repair will be needed". (This service is available contact Steve)
