I did just as you have written used the old chain plates as backers. Also I would recommend having them passivated which shedded any pivot rust.

> My original chainplates appear to be 3/16" tick. I have my eye on some 1 1/4" wide by 1/4" 304 or 316 Stainless Steel bar to replace my current chainplates (which seem serviceable still). The existing chainplates might perhaps be reused as backing plates. Any practical experience from the coastal A30 sailors on 304 vs 316 chainplates for eventual salt water work would be welcome.
