One of our members posted some time ago that he lost his rig when the thru-deck bolts broke. I had one chainplate leak (starboard cap shroud) a few years ago and I rebedded it. Then I recently decided to replace all the shroud bolts (3/8" x 3") as a prophylactic measure. The first bolt I removed was the one that had leaked. The head of the bolt broke right off as my son twisted it. Beware. I generally like the chainplate arrangement on the 382, but it obviously pays to prevent leaks and check the bolts occasionally. I have replaced stern chainplate bolts, but for bow chainplates, the nuts holding the bolts seem essentially impossible to access and I have not had the energy to figure out how to get the bolts out and then back in. They surely get a lot of salt water splashing over them.
