I have removed some panels inside to get a look at the chainplate attachment ...It appears clean and healthy. Of course ,the bulkhead (or whatever one calls the thing the chainplate is bolted to) is wrapped in fiberglass..so whatever is under there (wood?) is not available to see...but the chainplate bolts dont look like they are moving..the fiberglass has no cracks..
What else can I do? Drill some exploratory holes to get a bit of the core? Cut away some fiberglass? I dont want to make matters worse..
I 'll get some pictures..maybe someone can recognize tell tale signs.
