Midship Cleats...

I wanted to announce to everyone on the forum, we're beginning the refit of Jo Beth at the Hinckley Yacht Services yard here in Savannah. We gave the factory refit program very strong consideration, and after nearly three months of bid work, emails, and telephone conversations between us and the facilities, as well as sleepless nights, and an outright argument or two, Lisa and I made our decision for Hinckley. As Savannah is our home, geography was, by and large, the deciding factor. I'll be chronicling this portion of our adventure on our blog, linked below - but give me a week or two to get caught up!

Part of the refit is the installation of midship cleats. For those of you out there with factory or after factory midship cleats installed, what is the footprint configuration of your cleats - 2 hole through the cleat or a four hole base?

Thanks!

Re: Midship Cleats...

We have a two hole cleat that I assume is from the factory.

I do not really like the cutout in the middle, and I wish it was a little larger, but it is adequate. In the first photo there are two 5/8 spring lines plus the 1/2 fender line attached.

Re: Midship Cleats...

Ideally use the same cleat that you have for your other dock lines. Be sure to have a plan to prevent the sheets hanging up on the cleat. I am planning to install a set of folding cleats for that reason.

Re: Midship Cleats...

The factory specifications say...

Two 12 bow mooring cleats with 3 hawse pipes.
Two 10 open spring cleats amidships.
Two 10 stern mooring cleats with 9 chocks.

Re: Midship Cleats...

Mine are just like Rain Dog/Ocean Girl . They seem well placed for springing on or off a dock or hip towing with small inflatables to 25 foot towboats and after 3 years I have not had them foul any gear or be anything but satisfactory.

Midship Cleats...

I like the mid ship cleats, they're like rain dogs. I have to agree I'm not crazy about the open cleat.

Re: Midship Cleats...

Thanks everyone - finding a source for sufficiently sized burnished bronze cleats has been a challenge, but I've actually found three good options. Interestingly enough, the open cleats that folks have are ones I've not found in a large enough size. The only one I've found is a 4" cleat designed for flag pole use. I'm still looking, but am considering a pillar type cleat, which I've found in a 10" burnished bronze.
