The chain plates on my New York 36 are currently bolted to a 3 inch thick fiberglass bulkhead. I'm considering mounting a diaphragm pump for head discharge behind the head using this bulkhead as a mounting location. The positioning of the pump would be 5 inches away from where the chain plate is attached.
When the chain plate is under load, would the bulkhead's strength be compromised by having holes drilled into it?
