Aft Deck Cleats Are In!

Installed similarly as the forward deck cleats: secured to a threaded aluminum backing plate gooped to the underside of the deck. The bulwarks here are not as high, so the cleats must go flat on deck. Still, they are not ankle-biters and minimal toe stubbers when folded down. And keeping with the theme of other deck hardware, they are removable by one person with one tool.
