Trace the outline of the chainplates and mask it off (wiht about 1/16 in clearance) before calking and installing the plates. That way the stuff that gooches out is easily removed and none of it will stick to the hull.
Wipe it off with a soapy finger to create a nice fillet before removing the tape, you'll have a good clean edge
