Subject: chain plates

I was at Brian Toss's rigging studio in Port townsend, Washington a couple weeks ago and asked about chain plate in general. He asked what kind of boat I had, and I told him I had a Mariner 31.
"ah, the mariner," he said. "pretty good boat, but had lots of chainplate failure."
I looked at mine, which are very hard to survey as they are through the deck, painted, and behind the interior sealing lats. for what I can tell, they look alright. My old bronze turnbuckles are another matter, and I need to replace them right away.
