Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

I've never seen a backing plate used on the outside in that situation.

Remember, the primary force on a chainplate is UP, which puts the fasteners in shear, so a backing plate is of limited usefulness. Building up the hull laminate in the localized area would be more effective.
