In addition to its high strength, it has the distinct advantage of having a large opening in the center of the cleat. You can easily pass an eye splice right through, then loop it over the ears. Adjust your mooring line. When you depart for the day, just slip the splice off the midship
cleat and leave it secured to the dock. When you return, it is waiting to be quickly and properly secured again. It's just the right length without any fiddling or adjustment before you can leave the boat.
Quick and easy to adjust, simply lift the lever, slide the cleat, then release the lever and the pin drops into your selected adjustment hole in the track.
Frankly, due to their high cost, we sell fewer of these than our less expensive models shown below. But they are one important element if you want a quick, easy, and robust mooring system.
Suitable for use on any Catalina that uses 1" T track including the Catalina 25, Catalina 27, Catalina 270, Catalina 28, and Catalina 30.
Not all 1" genoa track is the same. Some track has 5/16" adjustment holes. Catalina's track uses 1/4" adjustment holes. The pins in our cars are machined to fit the 1/4" holes used by Catalina.
