Changing Style of Chainplates

I have an Island Packet. I snapped off the Port Side Upper Chainplate at the deck, 21 years old. The 3 chainplates are welded together and glassed to the inner hull. It is going to be pricey to have them ground out and re installed the same way. I want to do both starboard and port. Has anyone changed that style of Chainplate to the regular bolt-on to the outside Hull style that can be inspected and reinstalled easily?

Puff-

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.
