Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

Just to let folks know what the reason for all the madness is.
Note the crack




Here's the good news. That's not mine. Its a plate from a Irwin 43 out of Norfolk Va that the surveyor who shot my thermal pics is currently working.

The left is the bottom - you can see the weld where the bottom horizontal bar would be - on my boat that would be directly under the heavy (yellowish) tape - the only part of the chainplate actually sealed in contact.
