I'm not so sure that the change in geometry would be all that big a deal. Moving the shroud outboard 4 inches would only increase the angle by about one degree. I seriously doubt that the original tangs, etc., were made with a tolerance of less than one degree.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Guys and Gals.. Since this thread drifted into an engine discussion that I thought had some pretty valuable info hidden behind the 'chainplate' title, I've culled the relevant posts to its own thread.

You'll find it here:

Carry on!

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.

I have had my boat a 48 ft frers 1980 out of the water for 4 months and noticed the
Teak deck cracked across the grain adjacent to the single in line chain plate. I figure this could be due to temporary hogging of the boat, plus drying of the teak plus or either slight movement of the chain plate/s either way, listening to you guys I think I will take a closer look. Ps It's been it's very hot here in Dubai.

Gotta love those channels. Great for standing on when preparing to board a passing pirate ship.Hope the big fenders are out when needed. I've seen outboard chainplates in cast bronze with a T cross section at the top to prevent any flex.Could this be the best of both worlds? Neat and salty.
