Re: Suggestions for Cleat re-mounting

What type of pictures would you suggest that would be useful? I have included two pictures of the cleats, but are you suggesting some of the center board case area, under the boat (which I can't get, yet), or of the boat itself?

At this early point, I was hoping to find someone that may have already replaced or tightened cleats like these. The suggestion to roll the boat over, drop the center board, and take a look has always been an option, and I was hoping to avoid that task, if some one already knew if that was a worthless endeavor. I'll probably end up doing it anyway.

In response to a recent memo, from ShockT:

1) I don't think they were too long, as the cleats' positioning was fine for 1 1/2 years.

2) I hope not, but I'll have to lower the center board to determine that answer.

3) Possibly, but the answer would be the same as #2, and hopefully not as hard to correct as #2 might be.

The boat:


Sorry about the time delay - it took a while to find a way to post the pictures.
