That shouldn't be too drastic a modification to make. However, it will require changing the angle of the shroud tangs as well as getting longer shrouds, since the outboard position of the new chainplates will be further away than the current ones are.
BTW, replacing the chainplates is probably a very good idea, since it is very likely that all of the chainplates are suffering from the same crevice corrosion that probably caused the failure of the first one.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
