I had a peek this afternoon, Charles. It’s basically the same arrangement as the one I’m replacing, but with the cleat sited in a different place.

What I forgot to mention is that the system needs to work well in an anxious moment when sailing single-handed.

I’m drawn towards using a CL211 Mk2 Clamcleat with a CL815 keeper fitted to it. This should keep the line positively cleated or uncleated and looks much less vulnerable to accidental release than the cam cleat (such similar names!), after all that is the whole point of the keeper (see below).
