Hi Clive,

Thanks for your reply, very helpful and I'm now hunting around for a couple of 7" solid base cleats, they don't come cheap do they?!!?

Hi Michael,
I used 178mm (7" in good old money!) solid base cleats as shown in my photo in a previous post that I'm guessing that you have already seen... "Re-bedding Hardy 25 centre cleat".

Certainly does the job on my Pilot for temp mooring / springs. I use two long fore and aft mooring lines that double up as fore and aft springs. Diameter 12mm.

Hope helps!
Clive

Yet another question...

If fitting mid ships cleats to a Pilot I would through bolt them in the recesses of the bulwark as others have done.

My question is, what size cleat allows for easy rope handling in the recesses and is useable with rope diameters appropriate for springs?

In old money, 7"or 8"?
