Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

David, something about your questions and comments gives me the feeling that you are looking for some rationale or backing for installing some chains that way - glassed in.

If I am correct, please disabuse yourself of any thoughts along those lines - AFAIK it is THE worst possible method of installing chains that has been developed since the advent of GRP boats.

If anyone knows of a worse method, please chime in here.

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.
