Question Just old plates, but what?

I think these are just old backing plates, now sealed, but what was it?



In the close up you can see this is caulk where the bolts used to be.

Hmm?



I think I can safely pull them off and cover'em with G-10 for my purposes.
Any ideas of what they could've held?


Thanks!

It would help if you posted photos of the outside of that area... then we might be able to figure out what was there.

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.

As SD said, we can't tell where exactly that is on your boat.

That being said, if we're playing a game, I'm guessing that's the inside of the bow and the backing plates are for long-since-removed mooring cleats on either side of the stem fitting.

Yea, sorry....there's nothing there, just the flat surface of the transom. I knocked (rapped) all around the area, nothing. No difference in sound or feel. You can see the bolt ends for the main stay's stantion plate (if that's what it's called) and the stern light is next to that just above, out of view.

The outside was sealed and finished so nothing shows.

Maybe a horse shoe?...

If those 3 bolts in between are for a backstay chainplate they could benefit from a backing plate I think.

I'd second what mitiempo said. If those three protruding bolts are for the backstay chainplate, you really should have a backing plate. If the backing plate is plywood, the nuts should have some big fender washers.

Epoxied g10 would be ideal as a backer for the chainplate.

If that is the transom, maybe those are old backing plates from a swim ladder?

I wouldn't think so, because they're angled and most swim ladders would have either horizontal or vertical mounting points.... and they're centered around the backstay, which means you would be climbing around the backstay to get aboard.... which also seems like a bad idea.

Yes, and hold the mast with what....the main's halyard? Tie it to a cleat or such. Not too sure about that one.
