Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

I'm confused, how are the chain plates fastened?
They can't just be glassed to the hull and that is all, can it?

Is their any chance that they keep going down and attach to something below the seat. I can't tell from the picture if they stop or keep going.

I notice that they are in the middle of a span not at a bulkhead.
That means that the compression force has to be handled by the deck, yes?

Is that a nut at the bottom end of the forward chain plate?

Nice pictures, thanks for that!!!

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
