Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

In this case, due to the heavy cap rail and rubbing strake, that would NOT be the easiest or simplest method. It would require either complex bending & shaping of the chains or a lot of work cutting slots in the noted trim.

Bolting them to the inside of the hull in their original positions avoids all that. It does involve a lot of ugly cleanup work of the old glass though.
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.
