What teak? No teak in the way on my boat! A picture is worth a thousand words.
Are you sure they are shot ? Not that they couldn't be, but 1986 isn't very old, and as I recall, PSC are quality boats. I have a 1970 Yankee and the chain plates are still sound. I did replace my fore stay chain plate, and had a major boat yard make it. Took them two tries! I think any metal fabrication place would have been as good or probably better, as long as they use the correct SS.
