I suggest that Mick & WD need to take another look at the damage. Looks like the rubrail took a hit.
(rubrail is pushed down slightly) More of an impact crack, not a "stress" crack. IMHO
The chain plate isn't attached to the deck. There is a plate riveted to the deck but the chainplate passes through it and attached to the hull by those bolts in the picture. Not a big deal to repair.
