Alright I'm an idiot. I wanted to rebuild the shock cord on my out haul on my boom and also replace the cheap plastic cleats with aluminum cleats. I took it all apart without marking on the boom ahead of time and location of both cleats. I was wondering if you guys could help me out and measure the distance of the cleats are from the end of the boom. Thank you so much.

I think we have all done the same at some point.

So can anyone take some mercy on me and go measure the locations of the cleats on their boom?

You're awesome, thank you. Now hopefully my local rep will get the clamps for the cleats in by Thursday. Talk about leaving things to the last minute, tore my boom apart last week and didn't realize that I'd need new clamps until I had gone past the point of no return. Sailing this weekend.

Inland sailing is a fantastic Hobie Rep though so I'm sure they'll have them in time.

Thanks for your help Brian!
