[C38] Backstay chainplate removal

On my boat, the backstay knee was replaced because it was rotten. In order to do so, the PO cut an inspection port. When I inspected the chainplate, I was able to pull it out through the port. 

When I bought the boat the screws of the inspection port were hidden by a teak frame which I have not yet reinstalled since I'm planning to paint the cockpit.

Even though the cutout and current state don't look attractive, I think it's a pretty decent solution.

Hi everybody, has anyone removed the backstay chainplate on a 38?  I need to replace mine and seems impossible without removing the wooden knee  it is attached to inside the lazarette.   Any thoughts??
