Housekeeping Pads or Chainplate Islands

Good Old Boat magazine (Pages 42 & 43, Issue 65, March/April 2009) has an excellent article on curing chainplate deck penetration leaks, entitled “Chainplate Islands”.
Written by Don Casey, author of “This Old Boat”, the author addresses one of my pet peeves with boat builders. They install chainplates through the deck, without casting in a “houskeeping pad”. He details a simple way to remedy this failure.
The method could be adapted to remedy similar situations at any deck mounted hardware such as cleats & sampson posts, winches & windlass’, & etc.
