Can you see them from the inside? If not you should try to remove whatever cabinetry is in the way, so you can inspect them. If they go through the deck (I assume they do), that area is espescially susceptible to corrosion and cracking. Chain plates don't necessarily last forever, and they should be inspected periodically, when the boat gets older.
