Chain plate or impact.

Here's a photo from May 2013, me sanding down my 3 inch wide 2 inch thick rub rail.
Here's a photo from August 2013, I was sanding the under side of the toe rail (which explains the teak dust) and found this little bit of joy.

Note the first picture is provided so you can zoom in and see it wasn't there.

There was a "del rechio" in June, which may, may I say, have caused a roll and hit to the piling there (it's fended off with a 9 inch diameter fender.

Irwins have embedded chain plates, no way at all to inspect without a grinder and a chop saw.
I have a surveyor with a thermal imager scheduled in, any ideas, hopes, prayers and donations?
