installing pop up cleats

I was thinking about installing pop up cleats. Wondering how hard this is to do and if it's worth doing. Thanks.

Love mine...they are pretty handy to have. Installed them myself (similar boat to yours). Not too tough if you are okay w/ drilling holes in your boat...front ones are easy, rears are a little tricky due to accessibility (try removing the chrome vent grills on the corners). It is one of those jobs that may take a couple hours, but you could do in about 20 minutes the second time around. I put masking tape over the area to drill and marked that up after measuring a hundred times or so.

A "search" should yield some threads w/ tips and instructions. I went w/ the 4.5" Attwoods. Make sure you buy the "backing plates"; else you can easily fabricate your own from some aluminum stock.

One thing to keep in mind is that the cleats may not be accessible when your boat is covered. I had my (Evolution) cover modified by a local canvas guy so they could be used when tied to a dock.
