      > I can see why your chain plates are so much better, I was surprised that the original backing pads are so small, but on the other hand they have survived for the last 40 years. I was thinking of painting the deck with awlcraft but if you had it handy I would be interested to know the name of the french paint you used.

Now, after the upgrade I sail in very heavy winds, and there is no movement in the stays. So this means that the construction with just a plate underneath the deck is not as good as when its is fastned to the hull. Just want to share this with you.

I am assuming that you painted your decks, was it easy to match up the non slip texture? I am in the process if lining up a yard to do the work this winter but it's good to see what I may be letting myself in for. I hope that you are getting some sailing this summer after all that work, it looks a great job by the way.
