Hi Pete,
Yes the chainplates on our 37's are external and yes they can be subject to crevice corrosion and fatigue.Your boat like mine is older than 20 yrs and they probably should be replaced or at the very least removed and inspected.Im replacing all the chainplates on NiftyNickers this year,dont forget the stern and bow chainplates also,probably the most important.
Chuck
