I think if I had only designed the boat and then just managed the building process, I would not feel satisfied… I have a need to do at least some parts of the actual building too. So the last days I have been making the 7 mooring cleats. We decided to do them in high strength aluminum and have them welded to the hull, instead of screwing some manufactured cleats in place. Welded cleats are stronger and the leak risk is smaller.
