Actually, replacing the chainplates, and re-doing the rigging is not all that hard. This is all pretty simple mechanically. The real trick is getting the measurements and the tension on the rig right after he's done.
I would agree that you should spend the money and have a rigging shop take a look at your boat. The mast is at risk...and so are you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
