Might be worth doing some searching.

That looks like a night nightmare. I can probably swap all my chain plates and retune the rig in the time it takes them to remove 1.

It was me, but I don't work for them anymore. I would suggest contacting Allied Titanium and see what they will price them out for, but frankly for a fresh water inexpensive boat I am not sure the price difference is going to be worth it. If they were strait tangs probably, but these look the have some substantial fabrication work in them which drives up titanium prices a lot.

On the flip side titanium chainplates will last forever.
