Jake, I know you've had/have one, but on my Infusion those tangs are angled and firmly set in the hull- but I'll keep that in mind.

I've used the cleat like that on previous boats with out issue. The cleat is ONLY on the Port side, and only used when on Starboard with the kite up.
BTW- I'm the skipper on this ride

F-18 Infusion
#626- SOLD it!
