Re: Chainplate reinforcement

Thought I would add my experience of recently replacing my chainplates for precisely the reasons enumerated here. Here is my blog post: Stories of Aeolus- Our Gulf 32 Pilothouse: New Chainplates!''

Mine were original to the boat in 1988 and so 20+ years old, and like many boats, passed through the deck in a unseeable way. Sure am happy with my new, thicker, well sealed with butyl rubber new plates! It had been on my list, and now is fully off.
