Greetings. Please see photos. I'm preparing to repair my leaky mast step on my 1981 O'day 22 and wonder if anyone knows what the origin of the crack under the aluminum plate might be. I understand flexing would have caused the one beyond the plate but when I removed the plate there seems to be a gash that looks not by accident. And there is a stiff wire protruding.
