Re: Nylon or aluminum cleats on mast?
I too would try to avoid cleats on the mast, when possible. Especially any redundant cleats that wouldn't be wrapped underway. Somehow, jib sheets, spin guys, etc, all find them.
I know that some cleats are sold with load ratings, but probably not nylon. I'm not certain of this, but I suspect that the strength of nylon is affected by freezing or hot sun.
