good news.I think

I got caseys book..I removed a few bolts through the chainplate and bulkhear..They are dry and tight.. I need to find out if the deck is cored at this chainplate attachment location.When I remove the offending deck skin under the deck plate , if the deck is cored, I will remove core (a bit) beyond the dimention of the deck plate, fill with epoxy (remembering to seal the inside skin with a temp patch) sand and reinstall deck plate..If its not cored.....whats that mean? just the top skin (deck) and soekind of block or reinforcement under there? Since the deck is bulging a bit, I think I'll have to cut it out (somehow) and fill with epoxy as if it was cored...what do you think?

Check this site out. It seems that 10Ms have a chainplate problem. Pretty much explains what you need to do. Pearson 10M Chainplates

Good luck

Did you solve the mystery of the bulging deck around the chain plate cover? What is your Hull number on your 10M? If it is less than hull 100 (and I suspect it is) then Pearson had an issue with the way in which the main chainplates were attached to the hull.

Since you haven't posted since March, I assume you worked it out?
