I am in the process of rebedding the cleats
on my 27 Tartan. There are wood pads under all of them.
If they are necessary what purpose do they serve? None of the other boats in the Marina have them. They seem to be more for looks and just seem like one more item to be revarnished from time to time.
If they are necessary should the holes be over sized, filled and redrilled to the correct size?
are all thru bolted and have good backing plates
