Re: Large cleats - Where to find?

The old rule of thumb for cleat size is 2" for every 1/8" of rope diameter. So for 5/8" mooring lines the smallest cleat should be 10"; for 7/8" it should be 14".

Non Herreshoff style would also be preferrable

Thanks for any relevant info...

By the time you are looking for large cleats (for a Pierson 40?) you might seriously consider aluminum bollards.

Re: Large cleats - Where to find?

I don't blame you for not wanting Chinese. Their metallurgy is always of question. A large cleat that is under load from a stretched out nylon line can be deadly shooting back at your face.
