Quadrant questions

2? problems.
1) My quadrant stop is "working" the deck each time the wheel goes to full lock and the quadrant hits the stop.

See pic below and notice the cracking/chipping gel coat around the top plate which bolts directly through the deck to another plate below which holds the stop. The deck is approx 5mm thick.

Next pic is the quadrant with the stop behind it. Part of the solution I think is to reinforce the deck from below by glassing in some marine ply between the plate holding the stop and the deck above.


But what to do about the damage to the deck above which has that dimpled finish on it? Maybe make a thin teak plate to go under (and wider than) the ss plate, further reinforcing the deck but also covering the damage? This is something I can do myself whereas gelcoat repair of this kind is a pro's job (at least for me).

2) I discovered that the quadrant stop has been welded off to one side and certainly the wheel turns slightly further to port than starboard. Should I be concerned about this?

As ever appreciate any suggestions or observations.
