Your right about the music Max, I'm sure he's a killer player but I can't say I appreciated it, but each to their own & it is a top clip

I can just see the Hobie Armarda sailing round the Eat Coast now!

MAx - when you do the cleat I would love to see the pics as I will do this also. On another post (here I think) I saw someone colour code the front ones as well. I think I will do this as well!

So are you fitting a cleat at the rear instead of adding the harken wedge to the front cleat?

Angus, will post pics when fitted. Still waiting for the cleat.

BR, yes. There can be quite a bit of force on the cleats in strong winds, so I'd like to operate the furling line using an aft cleat. Probably try running it through a fairlead or two along the gunwhales.

However, Kayaking Bob fitted a wedge (and some others), and I think he's happy with that.
