    i use the rear cleat to tie off and hang the rear bumper (hippy hop)

    i use the front cleat to tie off

    i have a holder that slips over the windshield frame for a forward/midship bumper (hippy hop)

    or will use the tower and hang the hippy hop from

    never needed more than 2 cleats per side. Heck my 03 did'nt even have cleats and never really thought about it as there are so many places to use to tie off with

    You guys ever anchor? Use my forward side cleats all the time for my anchor line. Another line off the rear cleat up to the beach to a stake in the sand. Which side depends on which way the current/wind is going.

    Mine's kinda weird though - pull ups in the rear, surface mount style on the widest part of the beam. Wish those were pullups too but to swap out would leave mounting holes exposed... Unless I could find some sort of plate to cover them.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    You could just reglass and gel coat the holes. I've been thinking about doing this, just afraid the color won't match that good and it will leave some ugly spots

    I would like to see a pic. I swear I've seen pull up ones that would require some serious drilling but would cover everything.

    My issue with the pull up cleats is I want them in a different location that my standard ones are in now. My standard cleats are on the side of the gunwale, I want pull ups on too of the gunwale in the rear

    I never had cleats. Always thought is was odd not to have them but I tie off to the tower and rear tie down and never miss them.

    Mid ship-


    Rear-


    I think I'd need some sort of base plate for the holes if I went to another pull up style.

    Yea, that would be tricky. You'd have to get a custom cut rubber backing and a custom plate or something.
