I cobbled together this double mainsheet cleat from a Harken double mainsheet swiveling cleat system for a main with a boom/purchase system. Just had to mount the Harken d-cleat by drilling mounting holes on the single-cleat swivel, and add another fairlead. There is going to be a shaped piece of 6061 under the fairleads to add the outside screw holes. Once I had the Harken d-cleat, it was simple..Sometimes you win one! The Wichard 70mm fiddles are amazing pieces of kit: 3800lb working load! Overkill, but the 70mm bb sheaves let the line in and out with ease. I did have to pick up one Lewmar 70mm fiddle w/becket, since there were only 3 of the Wichard fiddles available. I'm keeping my eyes out for another one. These are discontinued, so are not easy to find.
