Stanchion backing plates

I am having the deck painted on my 1973 Midship 25. All the stanchions will be removed, along with the 35 year old marine plywood backing plates underneath the deck.

The paint shop is planning to replace the wood backing plates with new wooden ones. Is it worth the extra time and expense to have stainless steel plates fabricated?

IMHO, you're better off with fiberglass backing plates. Stainless steel ones are fairly expensive, and a PITA to machine.

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.

SS is likely heavier than the ply as well. Unless you need the extra space below decks (????!), you're dealing with a 35 year-old boat that probably doesn't warrant the extra expense. New sails would be a better investment in "boat enjoyment units".

Ditto...epoxy coat the marine ply (including the drilled holes) and use good sized stainless washers to spread the load.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Yeah, but the OP doesn't have a CATALINA... so I doubt he has that as an option....
