Beginners rigging question...

I considered that the cleat might be for the outhaul, but because there is one on both sides of the boom; I figured that the "extra" one must be for something else (I don''t have any clue as to what the eyebolt doohickey on the mast is for either).

Is it possible that the cleat would be located closer to the mast on a larger boat for accessibility reasons. I imagine that it would be easier to manage a line closer to the mast rather than towards the end of the boom where you would have to reach over your head.
