Whwere would I get chainplates made?It is in the shape of a upside down T. The lower part of the T protrude through the deck which I am refering to as the ear. the ear had broke off just above the factory weld to the plate (that would be the top of the T) that is roughly 8 X 8 inches square. Corrosion issues? Well the boat is 30 years old and in the bay. There is s slight amount of surface rust in rigging in some areas. I'm sure it would be wise to replace all of the rigging but I don't know if I can without pulling the boat out. Maybe I can get hoisted up in a bosum chair and change the cables one at a time? Is this something I can build from West marine or do I have to have the shroud cables made somewhere? Someone has to replace the rigging on sailboats in the Bay area! I have always had boats in the Delta so am still learning my way around. Thanks for the advise Ken
