Re: Forestay Chain (or Tang) plate SM#353 Indecent

We recently had a rigger onboard who looked at the forestay chain plate and said that the groove in the photos I posted was due to wear on the chain plate and needed to be replaced as well as the bolt. Having really looked at the plate once it was removed, there is no sign of rust where the grooves are and they almost look manufactored. Does anyone have any experience with this on SM 2000? The link to the photos is below. The rigger replaced the plate which does not look to be as sturdy as the original. He was not able to source the bolt.
