hello all,

my port shroud  deck mount is leaking and a small amount of water is getting inside and running down the chain plate on the cabin bulkhead.

Has anyone got the same problem and equally know the correct way to repair it.

many thanks

Dunny

I had this problem on Petite Folie - the eventual solution was to take the chainplate out and apply glass fibre matting to both sides of the internal bulkhead that the chain plate was bolted to and then refit the chainplate with bolts that actually fitted the holes in the tang (the previous bolts were about two sizes smaller than the holes).  For belt and braces, a stainless backing plate with an angled edge was fitted so that it was tight to the inner lining of the cabin to help take the load.  The glass fibre was necessary because the plywood of the bulkhead had been softened by the ingress of water and the holes were slowly going oval.  Applied this fix to both sides and to the backstay chainplate which was showing signs of going the same way and no problems since.
