Hello All,
The plastic mounting pad that the traveller swivel cam cleat sits in, failed. It cracked.
The cleat has a bulls eye, additionally the cleat itself has warn so was looking at replacing this also.

I picked up a couple of swivel cam cleats with plastic base plates albeit with roller guides and not bulls eye guides.
Figured I could use the cam cleats and the base plate but it turned out they are smaller than the original. Guessing they are actually for the jib.
The original base plate is much larger and appears to be made of bakerlite type hard plastic
So did the base plates change size and material over time?

I think the original swivel cam is Harken but not sure what model I need to replace the cam cleat part?
How does one choose the correct size cam cleat for replacement?
Measure between hole centers?

Thanks,
SRG

I had a simular issue recently on a project H16 I'm working on. I just pulled the entire swivelling deadeye and cam cleat apart and bought new cleating plates and new base plate from my nearest chandlery shop. A good chandlery shop will stock major brands of all sizes for your specific setup. If I couldn't get them there then your nearest Hobie dealer will have the parts you need.

Not sure about Europe, but in the US the standard is Harken 150 Cam-matic (aluminum). On P. 21 of hobie Catalog. According to the Harken site, fastener spacing is 1.5 inches (38 mm):
