My PO had these installed, but they swivel and are attached to the side rails...makes them super handy! http://www.macgregorsailors.com/phpBB/v ... =9&t=24934

Bill EZ Cleats, one of the best things I've done to make sailing easier.

Now I don't have lines running through blocks back to the winches, plus it's a lot more direct an responsive to sheet in or let out my Genoa.

Best single thing to get if you do a lot if single-handing is an autopilot....just so much easier and more relaxing!
