It certainly isn't the case on good old #148 where the chain plates were
mounted directly to the bulkhead/knees. I reinforced both by adding 2
layers on each vertical surface of FG cloth between bulkhead/knees and
inside of hull. I hope to reinstall them soon and plan to rough up the
attachment side of the chain plates and set them in adhesive epoxy so I get
a good friction connection.

Subject: [Public-List] Spacers between chainplates and knee & bulkhead
I am removing my chainplates in order to increase the bolt size and inspect
the integrity of the knees/bulkhead attachment areas.
My preliner A30 #310 has ca. 0.75" spacers as follows:
a) starboard cap shroud chainplate not bolted directly to the aft surface of
the main bulkhead, but through a spacer ca. 0.75" thick set against the
b) starboard lower aft shroud chainplate not bolted directly to the aft
surface of the starboard aft knee, but through a spacer ca. 0.75" thick set
against the knee
It looks as though, for some reason, the aft surface of the starboard
bulkhead and the knee were judged to be 0.75" forward of where the
chainplates were to be located.
Can anyone with a preliner vessel advise whether this is "normal"?
Any comments on implications, e.g., for relative strength of these
chainplates vs the other would be welcome.
