New Traveller Cleat Approved?

Thread starter #6
No I'm afraid the new cleat will not make Wavedancer faster but it will stop me being slower when the elastic jumps off the cleat and jams the traveller like the left-hand picture.

If that on the left picture happens, then the elastic is too tight to begin with. The "notch" arrangement looks neat, but I prefer the "old" way because you can release the (adequate) tension on the elastic just by releasing the traveller line.

On the boom the notched cleat of course provides more options for attaching outhaul-related equipment.
