Re: Chain plate or impact.

Can you remove the chain plates and mount them on the outside of the hull? It makes for easy inspection, no leaks and will practically eliminate corrosion. If your current chain plates are embedded on the inside of the hull (as I understand it), moving them to the outside shouldn't reduce your sheeting angle all that much. Just my 2 centavos ...
