Re: Chain plate or impact.

I think it would be worth it to remove the plates from inside the hull and mount backing plates on the inside where you can see them. Metal plates embedded inside the hull will eventually cause problems as they expand and contract at different rates. Digging them out and reglassing isn't such a big job.
