Re: Chain plate or impact.

The survey is done, I don't have the report yet so I can't share the images.

Per the verbal report all my chain plates show signs of moisture intrusion - and we found additional spider cracking (less obvious) at other plates - some in the white gel below the cove stripe (blue).

The only good, dry plate is the forestay.

I reckon I'll be in the vendor tents at the boat show, talking to riggers

At this point I'm not sure if I'll be going at them from the inside or the outside.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
