Islander 34 Chainplate Rebedding

Hello All,

I need to replace a portion of the port bulkhead. The area where the chainplate is bedded has seperated from the rest of the bulkhead. My questions are these: 1.Do I have to remove the MAST before I can replace the bulkhead or can the shroud be secured to the toerail during the work? 2. Do I need to replace the entire bulkhead? Or does anyone think that I can effectively repair the problem by replacing one quarter of it?

Basically, the chainplate (rather the 1 sq ft area around it) moves while the boat is under sail. The deck is cracking slightly under the added strain of a moving chainplate.

Thanks to anyone and everyone who might have advice for me.
