Removing Chainplates

Island Packet has I believe always encapsulated their chain plates, and have of course suffered the consequences from doing so.
I think they were originally sealed with Lifecaulk, 5200 or similar, but for the last several years they have gone to GE SCS 2000 caulk. Itís very flexible where 5200 and others are not, being flexible itís seal holds.
This is the data sheet where UV resistance, temp ranges, flexibility etc are listed

Re: Removing Chainplates

Okay, so the tool did the trick, with little or no damage to the deck.
Just cutting through the glass along the chainplate did the trick, a little prying with a 18" bar and wiggling pulled it out, now I just have 7 more, to disassemble the inside of the interior cabinets, unbolt the chainplates, cut the glass and pry out. No problem, now I know what I'll be doing for the next couple days.....
Yeah, I'll be glad when the boat is all back together.

Re: Removing Chainplates

1. If it looks like epoxy cast 'bushing' then it may be one. Chip it out with a tool. Do NOT bang the plates from below trying to push them up - you may lift the deck.

2. Non-technically-wise, are you making a DECISION? Good. There is only 'either do or do not'. My young padawan. Your focus defines your reality.

3. Attached: image of the chainplates we replaced this summer. Age: 10 years. Material: SS. Miles: 20k. Boat sailed intensively and kept outside in a tropical climate.

PS If you replace your chainplates, you know you have 100% good stuff. If you do not, you may believe you have 100% good stuff.

Cheers,
b.

Harbor Freight FTW. It just paid for itself on this one job alone...provided it lasts for seven more.

Yeah, couldn't justify paying $139.00 for one when I'll get limited use out of it, beyond this repair. The tool worked well, it's the blades that I had to upgrade, quality blades do last longer, fiberglass is surprisingly abrasive on blades.
