Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement
Speaking of the whole thread - sometime back I mentioned that I needed to build a platform for the plates because obviously the hull curves. The rigger said no, just a good flat surface and he'd bend the plates to the hull curve.
Guess what, now I need a platform/shim because a) bending 1/4 ss plate ain't so easy and b) doing so puts unacceptable pressure on my cap rail where the plate exits.
1 week to launch and all of it is raining.
