Thanks – finally got that. What’s had me foxed is that since we don’t have the barber hauler type of system, the guy is held by a side entry cleat, so I didn’t see the need for another – it’s going to be cleated twice, once at the gunwale and once at the thwart. That’s fine if I’m pulling the pole back, but if I want to move from a run to a reach, I’ll have to make sure it uncleats at both points.

Best thing is to take advantage of a fine day with a gentle breeze, and get out there and try it …….. and today looks just the day. Bye!
