Chain Plate Covers

Does anyone know of a suppliers for the stainless steel covers that slip over chain plates and get sealed to the deck/rail with screws? The ones on my cabo rico are pretty beat up.

Plus they were cut on one side so they could fit over the old chain plate design. With the new chainplates I don't need that.

I have checked the usual suspects but maybe I am not searching by their actual part name.

Thanks,

- z

I believe they are called chainplate covers. See http://www.alliedtitanium.com/produc...hp?UPDCID=9217

If they don't have what you need you could always take a sample to a metal fabricator, although that could pricey.

Might try Garhauer.com. They make the hardware used on Catalina's among others, have done custom work at reasonable cost for others, and are great people to work with.

Re: Chain Plate Covers

I second the Garhauer recommendation. They're a great shop and they'll do custom stuff very affordably as well.

Re: Chain Plate Covers

I used a local machine shop to fab. a couple for me for a San Juan 26, they didn't come with them.
I call them "cribbing plates" but that's probably the wrong term.
Make them out of stainless and polish them yourself, a lot cheaper.
These won't be expensive to fabricate.
It's the finishing polishing that cost more.

Re: Chain Plate Covers

Talk to my cousin Byron at Capo Welding over on Riberia Street. They do very nice custom stainless work.

Or John P. Downs in Dania.

800 Old Griffin Road
Dania, FL 33004
943-921-0800

They made my chain plates and covers when I lived down there.
