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.
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.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
