Cleat Project Finished

Rate this Entry
The new cleats are all in and luckily they covered up the epoxy filled holes left from the prior smaller cleats.
The only finishing detail left for another day is gel coating the filled-in holes where the old spinnaker pole chocks use to live on the side deck.
(Every project I start leads to at least one more... or two more... or.....)

    In my opinion, the stock cleats were a little undersized for this size boat, and I had become envious of the Ericson 38 on my dock.

    Of course, like many things in life, it's never good to obsess about other people's equipment... the next boat out from me is a Yamaha 33, with 11 inch cleats! Hot Damn!

    Loren, any plans for the cleats you took off?

    Hi "Slick"...

    I sold all them to another club member who was updating a much older Pearson 32.

    Alas, too late to help you now.

    Regards,
    Loren

    Loren,

    Thanks for the reply. Our 911 just has one bow cleat and I thought I'd upgrade to two in the spring. I have found a similar Lewmar cleat and there is a chance that Rigrite has some of the OEM left in new-old-stock but figured if you had any of your old ones laying around it would be a better fit. Oh well, worth a shot.
