Re: Cost to Replace Chainplates? Should I Walk Away?

One you would have to have really GOOD LUCK to find a boat with age X chainplates


The cost is very much how hidden the plates are which can range from fully exposed and easy to remove to absolutely unable to even see them

Making them again depends on what you are copying and there is nothing wrong with waterjet to make the shape it just a matter of to work necessary to finish the edges and bring the holes to final size compared to other methods

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
