Sealing Chainplates

My portside chainplate has recently developed a leak that is prevalent when sailing in windy conditions with water washing the deck. It is not noticable in the rain.

The chainplates were sealed with 3M 4200 a year ago but it seems not up to the task. What is the best "proper" method for sealing this before it causes irreparable damage to deck and bulkhead?
