Re: How do you tie a cleat hitch?
Always used as the animated one displays... but also like others say, for cleats used where one might need to release quickly (like I dunno, jib sheets), you don't use a locking turn.
But my boat is just a baby, and I have clam cleats for my jib sheets, however on our US 27 we had horns, and these are the ones I'd shudder to use a locking turn. For dock cleats, no problem lock em up.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
