Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement
This also explains the bastard bar. It is welded on at an easily referenced point so the whole unit is shoved in from below until the bastard bar bottoms out and the bottom edge of the bottom horizontal member is puttied to the hull and you have your chain plate in positioned. Now just have the junior guy come after you and slap some glass over the whole thing and you are done.
I think you've got it.
So while the whole thing is evil from a repair point of view it makes sense from a build it quick point of view.
You've definitely got it.
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.
