Can anyone tell me the specific failure mode
on the stainless chain plate?

Is it the actual plate where the forestay connects that cracks?
Or the weld to the tube/strap metal?

Thanks

Hi

The triangular plate with the three holes is too thin (Needs to be 5mm) and the weld needs to be continuous. My weld gave way and I lost teh complete mast in a F2 - 3 !!

Cheers
