Different Chainplates

Does anyone know if there is a layup schedule for carbon glass fiberglass chainplates. Want to see what the laminate schedule is and calculated loads compared with S.S.. A little new age for an oldtimer but I have had success with other new age stuff. I swithed my steering cables out with Amstel blue and Am very happy. Good to hear your thoughts as I go on with this project.
I think I shouldn't rule out the carbonfiber epoxy route. What are the down sides?

I am not sure they go with turnbuckles, I mean you do not just build a replacement but rather re-design the whole thing, probably adding a piece of ware between the plate and the screw. (?)

why not bronze?

I'm only just learning about these things but I was wondering why, since you had to replace chainplates anyway would you choose to go with ss instead of silicon bronze?

My choice could be bronze, but not possible to buy nor fabricate bronze here (Canary Islands). However I believe one can get good material and work in the UK. It was also possible in NZ.

It all depends a lot on what the boat is made of, chainplates config, etc..

But I think dupey bronze would last like ages (?). And maybe we could avoid the trouble of SS corrosion.
