Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

Well I tell ya this has certainly given me food for thought. We are going to replace our chain plates this year and I was dead set on moving them to the outside of the hull and through bolting, I have seen it done on several 65's and I don't dislike the look. I have to say though I am going to re-consider my options. I may well go with the external plates, but I am looking hard at the idea of bolting through new plates from the inside. I will have a lot of interior work to do as a result of this anyway. Why this wasn't done when the deck/ hull joint was bolted and reinforced during refit I will never know.

THANK YOU!!, to all the posters, none the least of which the OP. I can't say that I am to exited about this project, but it must be done.
