Spinnaker Pump Cleat…!!

1303_2013_dinghy_show_015P&B fitted a very neat looking spinnaker pump cleat system on their Dinghy Show Model.  I must say that when I tried this on our boat, it was difficult to get right – and eventually we gave up!

Perhaps we should have persisted though – Alan Bax told us that the critical thing is to have good retrieval line pressure. Alan warns to get really good quality shock cord – and on the show boat the grade of the shockcord was pretty thick.

Looks very useful, don’t you think??
