Set of main chainplates for the Catalina 34. These chainplates include the integral, welded on backing plates for added strength under the deck. Used on the Catalina 34 for connecting the upper shrouds. An improved cover plate for use topsides is available to ensure a watertight seal where the chainplate penetrates the deck. (See "May we also suggest" below).
If your boat has experienced a leak at the chainplate, remove the entire chainplate from the boat and inspect it carefully. Salt water held against the stainless steel for an extended period at deck level will often cause crevice corrosion that will not be visible from above or below. This corrosion can compromise the integrity of your entire rig.
The tierods connecting to these chainplates have been either 1/2" or 5/8" in diameter. Please note your main chainplate tierod diameter in the comments field at the bottom of the customer information entry form during checkout.
