chainplates>>inboard vs outboard

This question may have been answered elsewhere but I couldn't find it. Which is better for a crusing boat? Inboard or outboard chainplates. In general it seems to me that chainplates that are bolted through the hull would be stronger and easier to replace and maintain than those that go through the deck and are bolted to a tabbed in plywood bulkhead with possible water intrusion at the deck. Plus, the shrouds may be in the way while going forward some stormy night. So, what are the pro's and con's of each?
