[attachment=1:182jsa6k]DSCF0054.JPG[/attachment:182jsa6k]Here are some pictures of the set up for the genoa and jib cleats. As you can see the sheet goes through a couple of pulleys before it reaches the cleat.The position of this fitting prevents the rear benches from being fitted.
I don’t want to alter the current set up as the boat performs very well to windward.
I think a possible solution would be to raise the swivel cleat on a small plinth(spacer)and cut out the end of the outer slat so that the bench fits around it. This cut-out would have the added benefit of providing a location for the bench.
Can you see any drawbacks to my plan?
