I bought a pair of cleats to run a spin or 2nd headsail.
Does the green one go on the right side of the boat and red on left? or are they reversed so the green is on the left for the starboard tack sheet?
Thanks

Have to admit I've never seen red and green cleats. Might as well follow the general rule - if you have two of something, the one with the least letters goes on the left side.
Left has less letters than right,
port has less letters than starboard,
red light has less letters than green light,
jib halyard has less letters than main halyard,
and now red cleat etc.

"Red is Green, and Port is Starboard"!

wait....
Is that the Cajun way? I hear tell things are done a bit differently, in The Big Easy, so I'm willing to listen, while I'm enjoying some of that wonderful Cajun cooking.
