Deck Cleat

Does anyone know a source for the deck cleats used on the Bahia?
We snapped off an arm attempting to dock in 20+ kt wind, Joy...

I guess I would get something similar but not the same. I can't remember ever breaking the horn off a cleat. never seen it, seen the bolts pulled through but never the failure of the cleat. Not trying to be snide but that seems unusual. sorry I wasn't more helpful just struck me as a very unusual failure. Do I understand that you clean broke the cleat off while docking in a 20knt breeze? Could you shed some light on how this happened?

Docking in 60 knots wind should not damage your cleats.

Time to look for a different model and beef up the size.

Quite a few Chinese knock-offs of the Herreshoff cleats on the market, easy to identify: They are thinner, or skinnier and out of proportion and not 316 SS. Price is about half of the real thing.

It looks like that is the one we have, but the size is slightly different.
Could be 103899... The one that worries me is the D value, it's 85 center to center.
I'm not sure if they have D going to the outside of the base (120mm) or center of the pins (85mm).
Ours is A=325 B=65 C=60 D=85
