Hi All,

The mast is unstepped, and the refurbishment is coming along nicely. I had a couple of aluminum cleats that got sacrificed during removal from the mast and one from the boom. I used to have nylon cleats on my skiffs and when I went to the marine store, all they had was "Sea Dog" nylon cleats. My question is: do sailboats need aluminum cleats, or will nylon work?

Thanks for the feedback everyone. The cleats on the mast and boom are of "old style" horned and jam cleat (open bottom) type and I do use the horns for line organization. I had no intention of going to a different method of cleating, but when I could not not readily find replacement aluminum (black) cleats I asked the question. Guess I'll have to go on line. Boy are these hummers pricey!
