Please take note. This blog is in the process of moving to a new platform (WordPress) for many reasons (easier to publish being one).
The URL of the new blog platform is http://www.fromabarehull.com.
At the URL, you will find recent updates, and how to follow using Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
The plan is to provide timely, more detailed, project information as it happens.
In the future, this address will redirect to the new URL and the original content will be removed.

Forward Cleats are IN!
Some of you out there will balk and say "Hey, that is a moving part! Moving parts will fail!" Yes, that is true. All I can say is that these are beefy. The primary parts are cast 316 stainless steel. The horn part appears solid. I figure if these don't work out I can always install a standard cleat later.
Installed with a 3/8 inch aluminum backing plate. Threaded of course, such that it can be removed by one person, with one tool. To make those future paint jobs easy.
