On my Westerly original backing plates were all aluminium. They were glassed over. When I cut the fiberglass, all what left of aluminium was white powder.
This is result of electrochemical corrosion of aliminium and stainless steel in sea water which eventually penetrated from the deck into the pockets isolated from the interior of the boat.
