Re: Chain plate or impact.

I do know that Seafever pounded on some piles hard enough at some point in in its past when its mooring chain failed and broke open most of the starboard side of the boat

There was not really much obvious external damage as the rubber rub rail hid it very well

It was not obvious how bad it was unit I stared re-coring the foredeck section of the hull and I was able to lift the deck by hand

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