Just wanted to send an update, since I rebedded my first chainplate this past weekend. While it wasn't cold out, it did help to search and read old posts and ask questions here on Sailnet, so thanks!
I used 3M 101 and had no problems. It appeared the core was sealed with epoxy, which is not factory, so it will be interesting to see if the other chainplates were also done.
The time-consuming part was getting the cover off the deck, and also cleaning it and the slot area. It had a lot of sealant in there. But the rebedding was a snap once everything was clean.
Anyway, here's a pic, before fully cleaning the chainplate up (so there's a little sealant residue still on there, but you get the idea). I hope it holds up!

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.
