any machine shop that has acces too good 304, 316 stainless

those are 304 more than likely and there is nothing to it really

are they tied into a plate below?

it looks like they are the type that goes through the deck and tie under with nuts but the plate actually is also tied under toa bulkheads or knee or something


Id offer to make them here and send them up but it wont be cost effective for your though

yeah thats what I thought

is the backing plate real big? like bigger than the top part? not toed to anything else?

I know this goes against what a lot of people say but your friend here is 304 stainless

its what most stainless hardware fittings were made out of back then and is also less brittle

having said that like the pics show they sirface rust more and dont look as good

in any case

good luck

It would be good to see what is going on inside the boat. If those are chainplates then it seems like you would want more than a backing plate on the inside, something needs to transfer the load into the boat's hull or bulkhead. The deck typically can't handle that sort of load.

This is a very similar product that is already made:
Tow Pad Eye

This is the style of backing plate/chainplate that I would expect for rigging loads. It attachs to a deck mounted padeye like the one shown, but transfers all of the load from the deck to a bulkhead:


My boat uses something like that under the backstay padeyes to transfer load from the deck to the transom.

that pic shows what I was talking about...although on some smaller older boats indeed all you have is a bigger backing plate(to spread the loads) and then the upper plate pad up top...

Alex, I sure hope that's a "before" picture, what with the rusty/missing hardware and the verboten wire nuts!

That is just a random photo that I found showing an angle bracket style chainplate. It is not my boat. My boat's chainplates are pristine.
