Re: chain plates

I would really suggest getting those chain plates removed and dye tested for crevice corrosion. It's not a particularly hard job once you figure out how to disconnect them from the inside of the boat. The fiberglass on the pics though looks saturated with water. If that's the case, you can almost bet that the stainless will be heavily corroded.
