We think these boat cleats on our Bayliner Bowrider 175 are going to hold up! They didn’t break when I pulled against them with 230lb, and they worked great at the dock during boat testing. The black nylon isn’t going to rust like the old cleats on this Bayliner Bowrider, and they only cost $18.
Installing the cleats was a little harder on this boat because the spacing of the holes was only 1 and 5/8 inches versus the 2-inch spacing of the old rusted cleats we removed. The bolts it came with were a little too short for our application, plus the looked a little weaker than what we wanted for this boat. We went to tractor supply and got us some real bolts that would not break under the pressure when we tie up our old boat to the dock.
