Replacing a mooring cleat without any access to underneath the ....10 Apr 2015 ... Welcome to the forum Songbill, that is a nice looking boat you have there. I think youre probably right about the cleats being installed to the cap before the two halves were connected. I would first try to get one of the remaining bolts out and see what kind of thread you have on it. Machine threads like a 1/4-20 will probably have a nylok nut on the other end and will spin before you can even get one out. Those would probably have to be carefully ground off to a certain ...

Adding additional cleats to a V hull - How difficult is it ....We have an old (1988) Century deep V hull boat. There are only 2 cleats on each side and nothing up at the end of the bow. Really, there should probably be 3 cleats on each side, and 1 at the end of the bow somewhere. Right now, the front cleat which is located about 3/4 of the way from the stern towards the bow does all the "work" then the boat is docked. With a 3rd cleat, maybe located between the 2 existing cleats, I could use an additional line to bear some of the ...

Accepted Method of Fastening Stringers - JLC-Online Forums.Currently installing pressure treated stair stringers and from past experience, metal hangers have been used to fasten the stringers to the support joist/beam. In this case, the GC I work for had the metal ... My vote goes for the cleat and notched stringer although I would not be averse toward the proper hanger. The cleat would be screwed and glued. ... That's ok, I like them better than a cleat for PT lumber as it's generally Hemlock. Bad lumber, but easy to treat I guess.

Hobie Forums View topic - Install of Harken Cam-Matic Cam Cleat ....There is a lot of "how-to's" when installing the cam cleat on a deck, but not a lot with regards to installing on a mast. I am using the 438 Cam-Matic Adapter Plate, which (looking at the install instructions) appears to be attached to the mast via a screw. Then, following the general instructions for the cam cleat, screws are then used to attach the cam cleat (to the adapter plate) and into the mast. What kind of screws am I supposed to use? I have never had to "screw" ...

Laser mainsheet -- cleat or no cleat? - Yachts and Yachting Online ....6 Jul 2017 ... Quote Riv Quote Post Reply Reply · Direct Link To This Post Posted: 06 Jul 17 at 10:08pm. If you have the pulley and block fitted to the laser a long time ago time it is really awful. I had one and got rid of it asap. I replaced it with a harken ratchet block and use a 8mm mainsheet. Works fine and is easy to hold. I would not fit side deck cleats as they are so painful to sit on. I also wear rubber gloves which almost hold onto the mainsheet by themselves which really helps as ...

Strong cleats... | Boat Design Net.Seeing first hand the power of the current I decided then and there to really make some strong docking cleats for my Silverton. The original cleats were just screwed ... Before installation the maple will be painted, and the pads bonded to the deck (deck drilled and counter bored just like the pads) with Sika 291. Over engineered, maybe, but I'll sleep well if we ... I probably would have used g-10 board instead of wood for this. And certainly not maple. But the parts look ...

Are your bow roller and cleats strong enough? - Yachting Monthly.17 Aug 2016 ... However, even the world's best anchor and strongest chain count for nothing if your deck fittings are not up to the job. Often overlooked and rarely included in the annual maintenance routine, your cleats and bow roller could be your weakest link that let you down when you need them most. Bow roller cleat. Bow rollers are vulnerable to horizontal loads as the distorted cheeks on this fitting show. Unless you've had the boat from brand new or replaced your bow roller ...

pull up cleats - General Discussion - My Monterey.I am not familiar with your model boat and the equipment installed during manufacturing. However, I recently experience what you are trying to accomplish by upgrading all of my 1999 242 CR with pull up cleats. After many hours of decision making agony, I settled for Attwood neat cleat. I believe they are by far the best cleat in the market (expensive though). Something to consider is where the cleats are located. They need room below the deck so they can be ...

Stronger Post-to-Beam Connections | Professional Deck Builder ....23 Sep 2013 ... To save time (and money), I use FastenMaster ThruLok bolts (800.518.3569, fastenmaster.com) instead, which screw right through lumber without predrilling. I've found that ThruLoks are usually less costly than hot-dipped galvanized bolts, washers, and nuts, and they install faster, making them a win-win. The most under-appreciated connection on a deck frame is probably the one between a post and the beam it supports. Although this joint may not get the respect it ...

Laser - to cleat or not to cleat - Yachts and Yachting Online ....Not having my own boat, I sail club Lasers & have found the ones at my new club are differently set up to the ones at the old club. Most notably, these ones have a cleat for the mainsheet - & after one race I can't decide if this is a good thing or not. Clearly, I can eliminate the 'forgetting to uncleat while tacking & getting knocked in the water' problem & cleating does make beating much less tiring - but on the other hand, I can't help wondering if I wouldn't have been able ...

Stair Stringer Kits | Professional Deck Builder | Framing, Staircases.20 Sep 2016 ... In order to speed up the job and improve accuracy, I've recently started building prefabricated stair stringer 'kits'. To get started, I determine the stair's rise, run, and width, and lay out the first stringer. After cutting it out, I use it as a template to lay out and cut the remaining stringers. I drill pocket holes in the tops of each stringer, which I will later use to fasten the assembled stringer kit to the deck framing with heavy-duty pocket screws. Next, I cut a 2x10 bottom cleat and a ...

Fixing Cleats to Fibreglass - Yachts and Yachting Online Forum ....4 May 2012 ... I need to fix a cleat to a single fibreglass skin - I don't have access to the back to be able... ... Suitable solutions range from just pop riveting to constructing a large glass plate, bolting the fitting to that and gluing/glassing the plate onto the existing skin. It all depends... Edited by JimC - 04 May 12 .... Pretty sure that on the ISO the primary reason for the class restricting moving any cleats was that other sections of the deck were not engineered to take the loads. Sometimes ...
