I was wondering If I should switch these out for chainplates that go thru the deck? The plates for the main sidestays are raised slightly, telling me I am putting upward force on the deck itself. I understand this is incorrect.
I have two options.
One is to install turnbuckles below deck, between the plates that attach to the inside of the hull, and the deck plate.
Two is to swap out the deck attachment for thru deck rig plates.
I was about to replace all the bolts when I gave this idea some thought.
Maybe just swap out the two on the main sidestays?
