You're saying there isn't any specific brands of chainplates that people tend to favor like Harken or Schaefer. I thought maybe someone knew one, that is pretty much what I was asking. The holes being the correct size and thickness is a given. already asked the group for the boat but my rig is a custom job very different from the originals.
