    Posted: 28 April 2018 at 21:34
I am looking at changing the setup on our Walder boom break to run the line back to the cockpit (currently needs to be set on deck which is not ideal when solo). I have a copy of the reinforcement plans for the 355 but they show that the pushpit is not reinforced (which is not overly surprising) but they also indicate that the mooring cleats on each side of the stern are not reinforced?

Ideally I would attached a block and clutch system to the ring on the pushpit and failing that use the mooring cleat as the termination point.

Can anyone confirm if the mooring cleats are reinforced (notwithstanding the fact that the plans say they are not)

cheers

Don't worry.
Pullpit fittings are strong enough for this purpose.
I have spinnaker blocks, RRG line and spinnaker tackline set there.
A boom brake has not a such significant load.

Having had my pulpit come loose (others on the forum have had this happen I believe)whilst i was leaning against the guard rail at the helm I examined the fixings.
You may find the same on your pushpit. It is a piece of 6mm studding spot welded to a plate on the bottom of the post. so I would suggest checking-- it may not be as secure as one thinks.
