Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement
not sure what you worried about where the compression is going. the mast is in compression to the keel. the chainplates are in tension. fiberglass is very strong in tension. get a Fein saw for cutting away the glass. very little dust and the best tool for fiberglass work. worth the money.
