Chainplates Newport 30

Is it possible to reseal the chainplates of a Newport 30 with the mast up? Removing one stay at a time leave the rig stable?
If so, any suggestion for how to examine for damage in the core or bulkhead? There are small white discolorations on the teak where the chainplates bolt through the bulkhead. Also, suggestions for type and brand of caulks
Thanks
