Love the look of wood...even on a composite sailboat (pro custom wood worker here ) . I just wanted her to have a little bling, so instead of the hdpe motor cleat....I made this. American black cherry, instead of the traditional Teak (which I also love). Cherry has been used in boat building before, couple of examples I've seen in the Fingerlakes boating museum. Anyway stock SS bracket, SS carriage bolts nuts washers, and 2-1/2" air dried cherry from my property I had cut down 5 years ago. Finished with 5 coats of Spar Varnish. What do you guys think! Ok?
