series drogue chain plates

After doing a lot of research on storm management I have decided to purchase a Jordan series drogue. Hal Roth's book, "How to Sail Around the World" recommends fitting a chain plate to the topsides extending aft of the transom. The chain plates that he shows are massive.

Is it possible to buy chain plates like this online? I have a drill press so I could buy a blank piece of stainless.

Has anyone had experience fastening chain plates to an area of the hull that doesn't normally have a chain plate? What did you do to reinforce that area?

You can order stainless steel pre-cut to size and shape from several sources on-line. I'll see if I can dig up a few links for you.

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.
