Re: Cleat Proportions
I can't provide proportions, but will comment that make sure its big enough to take the number of lines you may need to belay to it at one time. Not implying that bigger is better, but to consider use. For example, a cleat amidship might need to take two spring lines, plus the line for a fender. And what about those 3/4-inch lines they use at the fuel dock or yacht club float? The Extra lines during a storm? Can we wrap them on?
See what I mean?
There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
