Leaky Chainplate

Chainplates should be pulled, inspected, and re-bedded on a regular basis, not only to avoid leaks and the associated headaches that go with them, but to inspect the chainplate itself for cracks and corrosion damage. Chainplates may look fine above and below the deck, but can have serious problems at the deck transition point.
