I think you need to remove more interior insulation etc to get a real picture of what's going on there.. Hard to believe they are relying on simply a large, glassed-over backing plate. The cracks in the deck around the chain plate are not exactly encouraging either...
Those are my thoughts...When I don't see big shiny strips and lots of bolts...those cracks make me very nervous...

Re: chain plates

I would really suggest getting those chain plates removed and dye tested for crevice corrosion. It's not a particularly hard job once you figure out how to disconnect them from the inside of the boat. The fiberglass on the pics though looks saturated with water. If that's the case, you can almost bet that the stainless will be heavily corroded.

Re: chain plates

It looks like the chain plates are welded to a plate of some sort. We have the same sort of setup on our boat. I'm slowly getting access to each backing plate on the inside of the boat. Before we go off shore, I'll need some time and dry weather to disconnect all the standing rigging and pound the suckers through the deck so they can be redone. That should be a lot of fun.

Re: chain plates






That looks pretty hard to remove and service

The closed body turnbuckels are also a time bomb as any issues are hidden inside them

Re: chain plates

It depends on the boat, but usually they are bolted to the bulhead inside the boat. Try posting pics of them outside and in, and we can probably figure it out.

chain plates

I have recently acquired a Maple Leaf 48 and am looking for information as to how the chain plates are secured...
