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.
No wonder they buried it in glass - that thing is NASTY. They didn't even clean the spatter off it. If I was putting that in a boat I wouldn't want anyone to see it either.
