Subject: replacing chainplates
In reply to: Bruce 's message, "Chainplates" on - Thursday - 04/ 8/10 - 3:01pm

Hi Bruce,
Did you put the chainplates on the exterior of the hull or through the deck? Inspection would be easier with exterior chainplates.
So far there was significant deterioration on the lower main forward port chainplate. The nuts an bolts attaching the plate to the hull were corroding and the chainplate itself had a visible hair line crack. The mizzen lower showed corrosion under a hand held microscope. So that decided me to replace all the chainplates.
Yours truly, Kathy

Don't forget to check the bobstay tang as well, I replaced mine in November, the holes for the bolts were bigger than the bolt heads.
Only cost $38.00 US and was ready less than 24 hours later. Built with heavier stock as well.
Gotta love Mexico!
