Cleat in anchor locker - Catalina 30

I have a 1993 Catalina 30. In the anchor locker there is a cleat located at the rear in the middle. It is perfectly placed for tying off the rode and closing the locker hatch when at anchor. The bow cleats don't allow the rode to run fair.

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed a "structural" cleat and not just there to secure the end of the rode (to stop it falling overboard).

There does appear to be a backing block in the front of the v-berth (which is the rear of the anchor locker!)

You might try and find the Catalina 30 Owners forum, you may not be the first to ask this question.

Re: Cleat in anchor locker - Catalina 30

It is for securing the end of your anchor rode. Use should also mount a rustproof knife in the locker in the event you need to ditch the anchor in a hurry. It is not meant to be used when anchoring. Instead use deck cleat.
A two piece snubber, attached to both how cleats is how we handled anchoring.
