Moisture around chainplates

My boat surveyor commented that the moisture levels around the chainplates were higher than the rest of the deck where the levels were considered normal. Is this typical on an I-30? I don't sense this is a matter of major concern but was wondering if there are pre-emptive measures that can be taken to minimize further deterioration. Would re-bedding around the chainplates suffice? Has anyone addressed something similar?
Thanks
Nestor
