Thx

Mark, you'll want to contact Stephen Jensen... www.sjsailboats.com or Stephen@ sjsailboats.com

He supplies those parts, and might have the prices posted on his website.

Mark:

I just saw an article in Cruising World, about chainplates:

http://www.cruisingworld.com/how-to/pro ... NTgxMjI0S0

Caution: Cruising world is oriented mostly to much larger boats (e.g. offshore cruising boats) - but this article is fairly relevant. One good tip is the article: "For my project, I cleared about an inch of balsa core from between the layers of deck laminate and rebuilt the area with thickened epoxy. This not only stiffened the deck, but also created a wall of solid epoxy that would protect the balsa from seawater in the event that the sealant broke down." For our boats, an inch is probably a bit overkill, but the idea of sealing the core with epoxy is a good one.

I would say that for any through deck fitting, chipping out a half inch of core and refilling with thickened epoxy is a no brainer. Protect your core like your kids.
