Midship Cleat

I hate drillin' holes in the boat. For a guy who measures once and cuts twice this was really a struggle. There is nothing worse than holes drilled in the wrong place. Dad did the research for me when it comes to managing the heavy surge of a Folkboat in Gas House Cove. I had to do this to USA 105 when I had her at the end of gate 4 and I was hoping never to have to do this to Josephine, but this is preventative maintenance and would cost a boatload more if I put a spring line to the winch or hand rails. After much internal debate and good advice from Peter (mike's crew) I decided to go big and put seriously beefed up backing plates in place. Not even tsunami surge could budge this bad boy.
