Outhaul boom cleat replacement

Post by jkalucki » Sun Jun 02, 2019 11:30 am

My under-boom aluminum outhaul clam cleat, probably original, has been slipping for a while now. Any advice from someone who has successfully upgraded to a solution with a little more positive control? Perhaps a small cam cleat with a fairlead to keep the line captive? Or is it best to stick with the original clam cleat setup? Given all the in-boom purchase, I can't imagine that the SWL needs to be more than 200 or so pounds.
