I'm newer to this forum and got some help last week, thanks for the help! I have another question for my 1995 Catalina Capri 22 Tall Rig #760. Have any of you had problems with the plastic clam-cleats on boom (out-haul, reefing, boom topping) holding? I think I have the original factory plastic cleats. The out-hall line on the cleat popped out today several times while sailing as did the reefing cleat. Thanks for any advice!

Pictures might help the good people here on this board to help you better. You may have worn cleats, or worn lines, or improperly sized lines. It may also be something else.

The outhaul jumping the cleat has also bugged me for a long time. Your line may be 5/16" like mine - too large. 1/4" seems to be the size, my halyard (2nd photo) fits it just right.

Very helpful, I’m going to try 1/4” first before installing new aluminum clam-cleats. Thanks
