Tom - got any pics of that set-up? "the big Harken fixed base swivel cams mounted in the track, that release upward"? Can you still buy that set-up? that could be the trick for my girlfriend as well!

I'll post some later. I'm away from home, where the boat is, this week. They are the big cruiser swivels. I can't remember how I mounted them. That was 26 years ago. Very easy to cleat and release from any position.
It's this one: http://www.harken.com/productdetail.asp ... &taxid=375
Not cheap though. The cam swivels are mounted in a fixed position-not on a slide.
