Need help identifying chainplate cover...

I'm replacing the chainplate covers on my Pearson 30 and would like to avoid creating any new holes in my deck. They are diamond-shaped (1.25" wide x 2.75" tall) with 2 screws on either side of the slot for the 1.5" x .25" chainplate. Attached pic is about as accurate a drawing as I can muster. Any thoughts on who made these? I prefer to just re-bed the existing screws and not fill them and drill four new ones. Existing covers have almost completely disintegrated (not sure how or why, but the core underneath is dry). I plan to call RigRite tomorrow, but there's nothing on their site or elsewhere that I've found that matches. Thanks in advance.

Your link isn't working for me. If it is a flat piece of stainless steel it would be easy to find a machine shop and have them fabricate the covers to match the original. You could polish them or have them nickle plated.

like resdog said. i had new larger ones made (gulfstar 37) that wrapped the toe rail because the screws in the flat ones were to close to the chain plate slotsand cracked the rails. i had 6 made out of 316 polished, slotted and drilled for about 68 bucks. these were made out of 045 s.s.

Sorry for the bum link... I've fixed it. I'm hoping not to go have to go the route of having new ones fabricated - if only in the interest of time.

Thanks for your help.

google pearson composites the mfg of your boat and see if they remember where/who made them and if you can still get them. i cannot believe that to have new ones fab. would be cost prohibitive, even if they are of heavier metal, ie; 1/8th to 1/4 inch.

Good suggestion - thanks. Having new ones fabricated is not a cost issue -- just looking for the easiest solution. I'll see what I hear back from Pearson.
