How are they attached? Are they encapsulated in glass? if so, hard to inspect but you probably have some rot and they are pulling out.

With only a 30 knot blow, I do not think that should have happened.
Respectfully suggest that you look for the underlining cause.

I have a 1966 pearson wanderer hull #9. I noticed the aft chain plate pulling forward and it actually notched the deck. We did have her in a little bit of a blow(20-30kts) during a nite race. It might have happend on the run, wing to wing with the full 150 out. Anyone else seen this?
