Hi Nick,

That’s a very worthwhile point and a generous acknowledgement. The difference between a cleat that too high – almost dangerously so, and one that’s so low that the crew can’t comfortably cleat the sheet into it – is not huge, and not that easy to check without actually fitting the cleat to the boat and trying it out. Well worth getting it just right though.
