Hi;
I've always been a fan of midship cleats, but the $84.99 cost of a C.S. Johnson folding cleat convinced me to look for an alternative.
For about $15, I made one.  Here it is: http://www.jibeho.org/midship%20cleat.htm

I get one at Boathouse.ca in montreal for about $20-$25.  If you want, I can take a picture if you want.

Hi Allan:
Sounds great! I'd love to see it. I'm not sure how you can post a picture, but maybe you can post a link?
Regards,
Tony

Interesting. Never thought of doing that. I wonder though about stress on the toe rail? I have been pondering installing midship cleats with deck through bolts/backing plate and lifting the cleat above the rail using a wooden block between the deck and the cleat.

Here is the mid-ship cleat I was talking about.

It is available from Boathouse.  www.boathouse.ca I believe they are the exclusive distributor.

I hope to leave this link up perpetually or admin can put it somewhere permanently.

I ran across this folding Johnson toerail cleat recently.  Doesn't look like much, but says can handle 2000 pound loads!  I hope the link works.
