These chainplates were used on the Catalina 380 for connecting the lower shrouds.
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.
In around 2002 the design of the lower chainplates
was changed to a ball and socket design that dropped in through the top of the deck to help prevent leaks. The newer design is such that the tierods are an integral part of the chainplate. If you have this later design reach out to our technical support department whose contact information can be found by clicking the "Tech Support" link below.

If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
